2.You will receive an email for each ready-to-pick-and-collect item.
You can follow your drive requests in your library account. As long as your order is being prepared, it will be displayed as "en attente[pending]" in your account.
You are then notified by email when your order is ready to collect.
For each requested document available, you will receive an email to your institutional address (if you are from the university) or to your email address submitted when you registered. If you order 4 items, you will receive 4 different emails.
If there’s a problem with one item, a librarian will contact you by email or phone.
