PSU Libraries offer Document Delivery Service (DDS) free to its users; (DDS) delivers copies of journal articles and book chapters owned at any of PSU libraries, two Toshiba 28E printers, and one Konica Minolta Bizhub 362 photocopier is provided for the service. Each user can print and/or scan up to 100 pages a month; e-printing and photocopying practices are governed by our libraries printing and photocopying policies and regulations, copyright conventions, and fair use agreements; printing and photocopying textbooks, and external resources aren’t allowed; extensive and multi-copying, infringing copyright, together with copying for purposes other than study and research are strictly forbidden.
Campus (DDS) allow PSU users to request having needed items delivered electronically to their e-mail addresses.
Users utilize Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service to have access to articles and/or books from another cooperating library holding them. Prince Sultan University Libraries extend (ILL) service privileges to faculty, administrative staff, graduate students, and undergraduates; eligible users may place their (ILL) requests for needed materials non-available or missing at PSU libraries; so all requests for locally available items are canceled, and users are provided with call numbers and location of available items. Users may use the online (ILL) request forms on the following links http://info.psu.edu.sa/psrtc/KACST/index.aspx and http://info.psu.edu.sa/psrtc/KACST/research.aspx. Study of (ILL) requests throughout the last year revealed most of them placed for articles published in journals already subscribed to; requests for articles in non-available journals are channeled to (KACST) Information Services Department that provides needed information free to our clientele. Having subscribed to (SDL) e-resources (e-journals and e-monographs) PSU libraries, we hope, will be capable of meeting research and information needs much more efficiently.
