Your subject area liaison librarian is also available for consultation.
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.
- Request journal articles and book chapters using our “request a scan” service in the catalog listed under “request options.” Your request will be facilitated by our interlibrary loan unit.
- 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, 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. 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.
