In line with the latest advice from the UK Government, Education Library Service is now operating a delivery and collection service.

Our priority remains to provide high quality learning resources to all of our subscribing schools safely and efficiently and following relevant health and safety guidelines. Please continue to request resources via the usual channels, either by phone or using the online request form. Please also refer to the Ordering, Delivery and Collection page for details on how our delivery and collection service will operate.

ELS is currently only open to staff to maintain social distancing however teachers and librarians can arrange to collect assembled projects. Please contact us for more information.
