Book Chapter Scanning Service

About the Service

To facilitate access to our Course Reserves and Library’s Print Collection for Fall 2021, we are continuing to offer book chapter scanning by request. Requests are made directly in OneSearch.

Need a full book? The Library is open in-person borrowing.
