Scan and Deliver: Bringing the Library to your inbox
Overview of service
If you only require 10% of a book (typically one chapter) or 1 article in a journal issue from items held in the JF Allen Library, St Mary's Library, Walter Bower House Library, Martyrs or Psychology Store then we can scan this for you. Alongside these items you will see a “Request scan” button for you to submit your request.
(Note that if you require a whole book or journal we are unable to scan this due to copyright reasons)
If you are based outside of Dundee and Fife and require up to 10% of a book or 1 article from a journal issue, please contact us at email@example.com with your requirements and we will assess your request
Who can use this service?
The Scan and Deliver service is freely available to all staff and students.
What can be requested?
- One article from any one issue of a journal
- Book chapter or 10% of a work
- 10% of a newspaper

How long does it take?
Depending on level of demand, we endeavour to supply scans on a next day basis, excluding weekends and holidays.
What is Scan and Deliver?
For items held in the JF Allen Library, St Mary's Library, Walter Bower House Library, Martyrs or Psychology Store then you can request to have a scan sent to your email. For example
For each request supported by a declaration form, we can provide a scan of:
a) one article from any one issue of a journal, or
b) up to 10% of a book e.g. a chapter
Exceptions to this are books made up of multiple individual works e.g. anthologies of poems, collections of short stories, photographic books, and atlases, where the amount of content available may be less than 10%. These will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
We will let you know if your request cannot be fulfilled for whatever reason, and will supply the print copy as an alternative.
