Articles that can’t be found among the library’s e-resources might often be obtained through Get it now. The article is then delivered as a pdf within a few hours, and the library covers all costs. When it is possible to order the article through Get it now, you will see the link when searching in the library’s search tool Primo .

At present, KTH Library mainly acquires electronic material, but it might also be possible to get hold of printed material. If you submit your request through the online form , we will do our best to find what you’re looking for.
