What is PDFScan?

How can I get an article or a chapter of a book held in the library sent to me at home?


If you only want one chapter of a book or an article held in the library that is not already available online, you can request it to be scanned and sent to you by email using the PDFScan service.

To use the service find the book or journal via the Library Search (make sure you are logged in) and click on the PDFScan option above the Location Items section.

Enter the details of the book chapter or article you want.

You cannot request more than one chapter of a book or more than one article from a copy of a journal to be scanned as this is against Copyright Law. Any requests made for more than one chapter will be cancelled as will subsequent requests for chapters from the same book or more articles from the same copy of the journal.
