Book Chapter Scanning Service

About the Service

To facilitate access to our materials for online and hybrid courses we offer book chapter scanning by request. Requests are made directly in OneSearch.

Please note, we can only provide access to individual chapters and not full books.

How To Submit

Once you find the book you want to request a chapter from, sign in to view and submit the request form. Instructions are available here:
