  • Offprints are photocopies of articles from journals or chapters from books that have been recommended for reading by your lecturer.
  • They may be photocopied or borrowed overnight.

How do I find offprints?

  • Look up the title/author of the article or chapter on the Library catalogue
  • Make a note of the offprint number - e.g. 5678
  • Letters after the number [e.g. 5678a, b or c] indicate multiple copies of the same offprint
  • Request the offprint at the Issue Desk.
