What can I request via Scan and Send?

Any items you request must be currently held in print in our libraries and must not be available electronically via our library collections.

You may only request up to one chapter or article from a book or journal issue. These limits are governed by copyright legislation, and you will be required to complete a copyright declaration when making your request.


If necessary, we may contact you to clarify your requirements and will notify you if we are unable to fulfil your request. We will try to fulfil your request within 5 working days (excluding bank holidays).
