Please note

  • The service is free for standard items that we can source from The British Library (BL) or other institutions within the United Kingdom.
  • For material that is expensive to acquire and services such as BL’s World Wide Search that is expensive to use, you may be asked to contribute to the cost of obtaining the item. If this is the case you will be contacted and asked if you wish to continue with the request.
  • You may be able to find alternative material within our existing stock which has the information you need so it is always advisable to check our other resources first. SOLAR is available online 24 hours a day.
