Request Scans from the General Collection

Submit requests of materials in our general collection via Resource Sharing. Select the “Book Chapter” option to submit your request.

A few things to be aware of before you submit a scanning request:

  • We will not scan materials if we are able to obtain an e-copy of the text (some exceptions may apply).
  • Scans of our Library materials will be done with Optical Character Recognition (OCR), but this may not be true of scans we obtain from other libraries via Interlibrary Loan.
  • Scanning requests will only be filled if they meet Fair Use Guidelines under the U.S. copyright law (Title 17, United States Code), or if copyright permission has been obtained.
  • We will only scan a limited number of pages: up to 3 chapters or 10% of a text, whichever is less.
  • The turnaround time will vary depending on how many requests we receive and staff capacity, but typically takes 1-3 business days.
