Other Important Information

  • Please submit requests in advance so that we have adequate time to process and scan your materials. Requests will be processed in the order received. You should allow at least one week for processing, although we can often fill your requests much more quickly.
  • Any paper document can be scanned and uploaded to eReserves, but the quality of the original will largely determine the quality of the scanned document - use a clean original copy whenever possible. Please – no staples in photocopies or other printed documents.
  • Any digital file can be uploaded to eReserves, but the person downloading the file must have the appropriate software to read the file – we strongly encourage the use of common, standard file formats.
  • Faculty are responsible for adhering to copyright law and securing copyright permissions as necessary [Copyright Guidelines].
  • Please note: We do not scan entire books or significant portions of books.
