Emerald allows subscribers to provide a copy of an article/chapter to a library that doesn't have access to the work in question via Interlibrary Loan. The content should be sent via a secure electronic transmission system, such as Ariel. 

If the receiving library wishes to make further use of that article (aside from giving it to the requester to read), they will need to contact our Rights team.


Emerald also participates in the following ‘Express InterLibrary Loan Schemes:

  • Copyright Clearance Center’s Get-it-Now service
  • Reprint desk’s A-Z Academic Document Delivery Collection.

Further information is available on our dedicated Permissions page.
