Improved electronic document delivery from the British Library: DRM Lite

From 27th January 2016, a new British Library delivery service called DRM Lite will be introduced making it easier to download and view the articles sent to you electronically from the British Library as part of the Inter-Library Loan Service. DRM Lite is an electronic delivery method that allows the British Library to supply secure encrypted documents directly to your desktop. The document is locked to a user rather than a machine so it can be viewed on a variety of desktop and mobile devices. Benefits of DRM Lite:

  • No need to install plugins or special software,
  • Access documents on any device with Adobe Reader X or above
  • Use different devices to access your documents; you are not restricted to using a PC
  • Once downloaded, you can save the document. This gives you access for a further 3 years.

How do I get articles via DRM Lite?

  • The process of requesting an inter-library loan is exactly the same as before. Requests should be made via the library’s online requesting form.
  • Before you can view your article you will need to have registered for On Demand with The British Library. Registering is free, just takes a few minutes and will only need to be done the first time. Once you have registered, you can use your username and password to access articles that have been supplied to you
  • If you are likely to be making use of our Document Supply service in the coming months why not register now so that you are all set up ready to start receiving documents? Click here to register now

For further information, contact your local HSC Library or see further blog posts.
