Subito is the document delivery service of research libraries in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. You can research and order essays and books online through subito. Articles can be sent via e-mail, mail, or fax, and books are sent through the mail.
As of April 2009 even more articles can be delivered in electronic form (as pdfs per e-mail). The different costs associated with the different forms of delivery are best viewed in the subito-Database (see side bar).
Because of the changes in the Copyright Act that took effect on 1.1.2008, it is not always possible to deliver some titles per e-mail and they are only available through the post or by fax. More information is available on the subito website.
Orders are filled within 72 hours. In rush cases subito can send the document(s) within 24 hours.
