Library Services during the COVID-19 Pandemic: Scanning Articles and Chapters

Scanning Articles and Chapters

While building access is limited and students are unable to access the library in-person, the library will follow new guidelines by Library Copyright Specialists posted by the ARL (Association of Research Libraries).
If you need an article or chapter from a print book in the library collection* and on the reserves shelf, please submit a Digitization request through the catalog or fill out the form to the right. Instructions on how to submit a digitization request through the catalog can be found in the box below.
If you are unsure of the pages or section you need, in the Chapter Title or Number field please write "Table of Contents and/or Index".
We'll receive a notification that you are needing pages digitized. Once we have scanned the chapters or articles you are needing, we will email them as a PDF to your school email address.

*If you are needing an article or item that is not in the library collection, please fill in the ILL Request form located here.

Digitization Request

You can also request for pages or a chapter of a book to be scanned (digitized) and emailed to you, provided the number of pages falls under copyright fair use.

After logging in and searching for the book in the catalog, click the title in the search results to open the book's record. Under GET IT click DIGITIZATION.
Click the box next to Partial and then fill in any applicable fields. If you don't need it after a certain date make sure to add that date to your digitization request. Then click SEND DIGITIZATION REQUEST.

We'll receive a notification that you are needing some pages digitized, review the number of pages to make sure if falls under our copyright fair use guidelines, and then scan the pages and email them to you.
