We are holding an event next Monday, 29th April in the Yellow Room, Howard Gardens Library between 1pm and 4.30pm for you to find out about the new developments in our Document Delivery, Inter Library Loans and Digitisation services.
Our Document delivery team based at Llandaff has made it quicker and easier for you to obtain materials not held within our collections such as journal articles and books using our Inter Library Loan service e-requesting form, they can also obtain DVDs for you to view from TRILT, a database of programmes broadcast on British television. You can also order digital versions of theses using the British Library ETHOS service.
Please come along to find out more about e-requesting, TRILT and EThoS as well as any other aspects of the Doc Del services that you may have questions about.

Slowly but surely we are working our way through the videotape collection of television documentaries broadcast over the past three decades and turning the lovely old VHS formatted tapes into shiny new DVDs.
Some treasures of the collection recently digitised and currently on display in the library are listed below. Click on the title to be taken to the item’s catalogue record where you can see what the programme is about in more detail and reserve it to borrow once it is removed from the display.
If you would like your favourite television documentary from within the collection moved up the queue then please ask a member of Howard Gardens Library staff.
