Library Scanning Services

Scanning Services for Articles and Book Chapters

The library is offering scanning services for GTU Library cardholders to support distance learning. 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.

Guidelines 

Allow at least 3 business days for requests to be processed. Check the GTU library’s online resources for supplementary materials you can use. 

Many vendors are making e-books and online journals available for free while the pandemic is disrupting spring and summer courses. Look through the following highlighted resources on the Distance Students Guide. 

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.

General questions about appropriate use of library materials that may be under copyright should be directed to Jeffrey Jackson jjackson@gtu.edu (GTU) or Stephanie Miller stephanie_miller@redlands.edu (SFTS) in the Library.
