Purpose

To expand our Library resources, we are pleased to provide the Document of Delivery Service to MPI full-time faculty, administrative staff and postgraduate students. The Document Delivery Service will obtain copies of articles from the Library of Chinese Academy Sciences.

Eligibility

Document Delivery Service is a free service available to all MPI full-time faculty, administrative staff and postgraduate students. If the article you need for your academic research is unavailable in the Library, the Document Delivery Service will try to acquire it for you from the Library of Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Placing A Request

Eligible users must fill in a "Document Delivery Service Request Form", which is available at the Library Circulation Counter and downloadable on the library web site. You may submit the requests at the Library Circulation Counter, e-mail it to ill@ipm.edu.mo, or fax it to 2870-2076.

Please check the Library holdings first to see if the Library has the items BEFORE submitting your requests. For that purpose, you may do the following:

Make sure all the information you fill into the request form is correct and complete, so that we can expedite your requests.

Time Required

The average time required to obtain materials from domestic sources is 3 to 5 working days. Requests that must be filled internationally usually take a considerably longer time.

Delivery

Articles are scanned as PDF files and delivered to the requester as email add attachments. A PDF viewer such as Adobe Acrobat Reader is needed to view the documents. If you want a specific item delivered by an alternative method, please note to your request.
