British Library Reprints Service

Due to increasing demand from pharmaceutical companies for original quality reprints direct from the publisher, The British Library has set up a new team to specifically handle and deliver such requests.

Our service offers:

  • One-stop shop competitive quotes from our vast network of STM publishers
  • Fast quote and delivery turnaround times
  • We track and chase your orders to ensure that delivery times are met
  • Can be charged to your British Library account meaning that you do not have to register each and every publisher as a supplier
