Scan on Demand
This service is currently subsidized by the university and allows you to request scanning and electronic delivery of chapters and articles from print resources owned by the UConn Libraries.
Who can use this service?
This service is available to UConn faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students.
How do I make a request?
To submit a scan on demand request, please follow the instructions in the FAQ for “How do I get an article or chapter?”
What kinds of things can I ask for?
You can request that we scan chapters and articles from books and journals that are available at the UConn Libraries. Please note that we cannot scan entire books or journal issues. We ask that you be mindful of how many chapters you request from any one book; if you are looking to obtain more than two chapters from a book, we recommend that you borrow the book through the Request Service. As a very general guideline (it will vary by source), we will cannot provide more than 50 pages from any one source.
Can I order materials for my course reserve through this service?
Yes, but they must comply with copyright and fair use.
How quickly will I get my item?
We strive for a 48-hour turnaround time during the academic semester, from request to delivery. During recess, intercession, and summer, turnaround time may be longer. Items that are missing from the stacks will automatically be referred to DD-ILL for you.
How will you notify me when my item is available?
You will receive an email when your item becomes available.
How long will the document remain available to me?
The document will remain accessible to you for 30 days from the time it was posted. You can delete documents by clicking the “Delete” link to the right of the article information.
What do I do if I accidentally delete a document?
Please contact us to have a document resent.
What if I want to request something not owned by UConn?
Please refer to DD-ILL’s FAQ section “How can I borrow a book, DVD, VHS, CD, music score, or other material not owned by UConn?“
