Note on copyright: While the library will do everything we can to support your courses, we must be cognizant of copyright issues. While much of what you do will fall under Fair Use, we must adhere to the rules as best we can.
For more information on putting resources online during the pandemic, see the Public Statement of Library Copyright Specialists: Fair Use & Emergency Remote Teaching & Research.
Document Delivery & Scanning Services: As you’re working to get your classes online, we are here to support you with material from our library collection. We are accepting document delivery requests; we will scan library materials to support the curriculum in your online courses.
- Search the library catalog and submit an Interlibrary Loan request for a needed chapter/excerpt.
- Make one request for needed content to include in Canvas rather than ask all of your students to request the same content individually.
- Access to this content once in Canvas, with an accompanying copyright statement (provided in the Read More link below), is limited to students, instructors, and teaching assistants enrolled in the course for the given term.
- Once need for the content has been met, or the quarter ends, please delete the material.

Document Delivery Request: Archives & Special Collections (A&SC) will scan materials from its collections to support online classes for Spring 2020. A&SC has the ability to scan the following formats from its collections:
- Textual documents, including books and unbound materials
- Microfilmed documents
- Audio cassettes
- VHS tapes
To request scans of chapters, articles, or excerpts from published materials held by A&SC, please submit an interlibrary loan request through the catalog.
Please submit requests to scan archival or multimedia materials by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow three days for fulfillment as A&SC will not have staff on site on a daily basis unless demand requires it.
A&SC will not scan materials too fragile for scanning or perform work in excess of fair use or would otherwise violate copyright. Priority will be given to requests by teaching faculty to support course curriculum.
