Request scanned excerpts of an item (Scan & Deliver Service)

Scan & Deliver Service will be resumed some time in Fall 2020. Details will be posted here when it is in place.

If you require a part of an item on our shelves – e.g, a journal article – you may request an electronic copy using this Scan and Deliver Service.

We'll scan and send you a PDF of the pages you need via email.


Current University of Toronto faculty, staff, undergraduates, and graduate/PhD students are able to place requests.

Individual articles from print journals held at Robarts, Gerstein and Mississauga libraries are eligible for scanning.

Scanning is only possible when copyright permits. 

Place a request

Submit a request through the Options - Request feature in the item's library catalogue record. 

If eligible, the Request Scan and Deliver option will appear.
