Library Scanning Services

Scanning services for items from the library shelves

The library is offering scanning services of items that are on the shelf for GTU Library cardholders. If you cannot find an online copy of an article or a book chapter, and the library owns a physical copy, staff will scan the article or book chapter and email it to you if you are unable to come in the building or away from the Bay Area.

Allow at least 3 business days for requests to be processed.

Copyright Restrictions 

GTU (all member schools and centers) and the Library comply with United States copyright law. The Library encourages all campus researchers to have a basic understanding of U.S. copyright law and an awareness of their rights and responsibilities regarding reproduction and use of copyrighted material. The GTU Library encourages instructors to apply Fair Use guidelines when excerpting materials for course reserves. For more information, consult the GTU Library’s Copyright Guide. As explained in the Public Statement of Library Copyright Specialists: Fair Use & Emergency Remote Teaching & Research, fair use permits more extensive scanning as part of a legitimate response to a public health emergency, as the one we are currently facing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
