Digital Delivery and Purchase Request Options


Scan and Deliver 


When you need a few pages from a book or a full journal article, Scan and Deliver is the service to use. (Up to two chapters per book or two articles per journal issue)

Scan & Deliver requests are placed through HOLLIS.* When you locate the item, look under "Get It," for the Scan and Deliver option. (Your first time in, you'll need to set up a profile.)

Normally, Scan and Deliver requests are filled within four days of the request.  You'll get an email with a link to the PDF. You have 30  days to download or print out before the item disappears from your account. 

*If you can't find a listing for the item in HOLLIS, or do not see a Scan & Deliver link, you can request it as an Interlibrary Loan

Purchase Requests


If you need material to which the library does not have access (whether long-term or during the COVID crisis), you can ask the library to acquire a copy, in print or online, using our Purchase Request form.
