Request scanned excerpts of an item

If you only require a portion of an item on our shelves, you can request an electronic copy using the Scan and Deliver service. We'll scan and send you a PDF containing the pages you need via email.


Only individual articles from print journals held at Robarts, Gerstein and Mississauga libraries are eligible for scanning. Scanning is only possible when copyright permits. 

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