Every order is processed the same day the request is made. The exact time required for completion of the order varies from one day to a fortnight, depending on the source which is used.

  Sources used by the service:

  •  The printed and digital collections in the EKT Library of Science Technology & Culture > 16,000 titles

  •  If the requested material is not available at either our or other Greek libraries, we work with libraries and major content providers from abroad (eg the British Library, Subito), which cover all subjects and types of publications. The choice of provider is based on the type of publication requested, the subject category, the lowest cost possible and the time available for completion.
