We are offering to scan items for patrons who are uncomfortable entering the library, unable to visit the library when we are open, or studying online or at a distance. We are also offering to scan chapters/articles for faculty and their courses.
Do you need something scanned for your class(es)? Use this form to request scans of library materials. You may only submit one request per form. We will only be able to scan items that are physically available in the library, which includes course reserves. We will endeavor to honor all requests and provide them in a timely manner.
Please note, we cannot scan entire books, as this would be a violation of copyright. When placing your request, keep fair use in mind. For more information, see the Copyright Checklist.
Provide as much information as possible so that we can quickly and accurately find what you need. Priority will be given to scans that are needed for current courses.
Notice Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions
The copyright law of the United States (title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specific conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be “used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research.” If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of “fair use,” that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
