Request an Article

What is +?

The Marie Curie Library provides ICTP members and visitors with a document delivery service for journal articles that cannot be found in our collection or in free repositories. Please register in the Library in order to avail of this service.

Use the Quick Request Form in this page if you already have a valid Library card and you know the article's DOI.

Use the Full Request Form if you are not yet registered in the Library or you ignore the article's DOI. Please fill in the form and bring it to the Information Desk.

Please note, the more complete your request is, the faster we can process it.

We normally supply the documents at no cost for you within 3 working days.

However, we may apply a small recovery fee if we cannot obtain the documents from the network of libraries with which we have established a service based on reciprocity. The personnel at the information desk will check availability and inform you of the cost involved before proceeding.

The service is provided in compliance with the copyright law, as appears in the document exchange network NILDE regulation.

The service also supplies copies of materials owned by the library to other libraries in Italy, within reciprocal exchange agreements. Requests should be forwarded preferably through NILDE. See Document Delivery Policy for more information.
