Scan On Demand

Scan on Demand allows you to request scanning and electronic delivery of chapters and articles from print resources that are not available online. 

Who can use this service?
UConn faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students.

How do I make a request?
You can place a request in one of two ways:

  1. Search the Library catalog and choose the 'Expand My Results' check box. Search your article or chapter title. Choose 'Request a PDF' from the record. If your article or chapter is not indexed and can’t be located in our catalog, you can place your request directly through ILLiad (see number 2).
