Advance request form for BFI Reuben Library materials

This service is for items which are not available in the Edwin Fox Foundation Reading Room.

BFI Reuben Library Christmas and New Year Closure

The last day the libray will be open is Tuesday 23 of December and we reopen on Friday 2 January. Last requests for off site material from the Multi Media Vault at Berkhamsted must be received by 5.00pm on Thursday 18 of December.

Requests can only be made using this form, or by filling our request forms in the reading room.

Please search our catalogue for your choice of books, journals and other library materials.

  • If the item is shown to be in the Edwin Fox Foundation Reading Room you may select it yourself on arrival.
  • For books and journals located in our Closed Access Stack, please fill in this form and email it to us by 5pm on the day before your visit. For requests received after 5pm, you will need to fill out request slips on arrival in the normal way.
  • For items from our Berkhamsted site your order must be sent to us five working days before your visit. Due to the fragile condition of some materials housed at Berkhamsted, requests will be fulfilled at the discretion of our librarians.
  • You may request one, and up to a maximum of five items. We will endeavour to have all your requested items ready for you when you arrive.
Please be specific where possible, as we can't hold materials indefinitely.
