Brock Library resumes scanning services

The Brock University Library is now resuming their online scanning services.

To utilize this service, users can request the scan of a book chapter or journal article in Omni, the Library’s academic search tool. 

Once a user has searched and found the book title or print journal they would like scanned, they can sign-in to Omni. In Omni, click on ‘Request a Scan’ and provide further details about which chapter or page selection needs to be scanned.

The Library team will then pull the book from the shelves, scan the requested section and email the user the scanned version within a few days. The email will include a link; click it, log in with your Brock ID and then download the PDF.

This service is free of charge and is available to all current Brock students, staff and faculty.

When requesting a scan, please note that Brock’s Fair Dealing policy guidelines are still being followed, which generally means a user should only request one chapter from a book, one article from a journal issue or up to 10 per cent of the total work.

Books available electronically though Hathi Trust Emergency Temporary Access Service are not eligible to be scanned on request.

For more information about the scanning service and other Library resources, please visit the Brock Library website.
