Interlibrary Loan offers scanning service for local print materials


Desktop Delivery

Aug. 29, 2012 –  

Virginia Tech affiliates (students, faculty, and staff) on the Blacksburg campus may request scanned copies of:

  • articles in bound print journals
  • journal articles, newspaper articles, and other materials found on microfilm or microfiche (Newman Library only)
  • book chapters
  • SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Technical Papers
  • papers from conference proceedings

from print materials located at Newman, Art + Architecture, and the Vet Med libraries.

** Please be aware that we cannot accommodate scanning requests of more than fifty (50) pages.  For larger page amounts, you will want to request the library-owned copy (if available) or submit an ILLiad request for the entire book. **

The scanned files will be delivered in PDF format to your ILLiad account under the Electronic Delivery section, where you will be able to download and/or print the file. There is no charge for this service courtesy of the Access Services Department.

To place a request, logon to your ILLiad account and select the Blacksburg Campus Desktop Delivery option.

Please allow 2 business days processing time; no request processing occurs on Saturday or Sunday.

This service compliments a similar service for extended campus users, who can have local print materials scanned and delivered to them as PDF (or have equivalent items delivered from other libraries)
