Each year,over 100,000 items including books and serials are loaned between libraries in the East Midlands and further afield, including the British Library Document Supply Centre. The timely supply of many thousands of requested items depends on an efficient and cost-effective transport system.
The East Midlands, together with most other English regions and Scotland, has negotiated a framework contract with the DX Company, and most library and information services in the region have established their own contractual arrangements with DX, using the regional framework.
The framework ensures that larger libraries receive a guaranteed daily collection and delivery from pre-determined pick-up points,while the Reflex scheme enables libraries which anticipate lower levels of use to request a collection on demand.
For further information about transport arrangements, contact: DX House, Ridgeway, Iver, Bucks. SL0 9JQ
or visit the website: DX
or contact : Tel: 07717 428595, Charles is the National Account Manager with responsibility for DX services to libraries.
The Regional Secretariat monitors the performance of the transport scheme and would welcome feedback from DX customers in libraries throughout the East Midlands.
