Document Delivery is a library service that helps you access articles, book parts or books not available at IST Austria. Different options are available, depending on the type of document 

Articles
If you find an article in a journal that is not licensed by IST Austria, two options are available depending on the search platform. You either have the possibility to select the embedded  button that will direct you to a pre-filled document delivery form (available at Scopus, Web of Science and PubMed) or you have to open the form and fill in bibliographic data yourself. Delivery usually takes between an hour and 3 days.

Book parts
If you find a chapter/part of a book that is neither licensed nor physically available at the library, it depends on the page count (copyright) whether it is possible to order the book part via document delivery. If it is not possible, we can order the book via an Interlibrary Loan. Depending on the type of service, delivery usually takes between one hour and a week.

Books
If you find a book that is neither licensed nor physically available at the library, you have two options. You can either order the book using an Interlibrary Loan as described above or you can place a purchase suggestion if you think the book could also be of use to other readers.
