Q. How do I request a scan?

With the Main Library closed, is there a way for me to obtain a scan of materials held?

You can request a scan of a chapter of a book or journal article from the collections held in the Main Library, Martyrs, and Walter Bower House. You will see a ‘Request a scan’ button next to available items on Library search. Information is available on the libguide: https://libguides.st-andrews.ac.uk/scanning  

Scanned items are emailed directly to you.  

Please be aware that the amount of content we can scan for you is restricted by copyright legislation (10% of a book, typically one chapter or 1 article in a journal issue).  If you need the whole of a book please use Click and Collect to obtain the book.
