Library Remote Services

During the COVID-19 lockdown, if you cannot attend campus for travel or health reasons, we can offer the following remote services for users.

Scan and send

Use the request form via your Library Account to request a scan of items held in print in the library. There are limits on the number of requests you can place, and the total content which can be scanned from any one item, so if you are unsure of the items you want to use, or the specific pages you require one of our other services will help you be specific.
