The Scan and Send service is for:

  • Brookes students and staff who cannot visit the library in person
  • printed items we can find on Library shelves
  • scans to use for private study only
  • one article per journal, one chapter or 5% of a book.

What do I need to do?

  • fill in the Scan and Send form
  • agree to the copyright declaration on the form
  • wait for us to send the scan. This will take up to five working days.

Where else can I get material?

  • We will let you know if we can't meet your scan and send request.
  • If we don’t have the item in stock, you can request an interlibrary loan.
  • Teaching staff please use the library scanning service to get copies to share on Moodle.
  • The scans are provided in an OCR readable format. For more information on obtaining accessible material take a look at our alternate formats webpage.
