Q. Can I get scans of journal articles, book chapters, and entire books?
In adherence with US copyright law, we can scan and deliver articles and book chapters (but not entire books) from our collections for members of the Penn community.
At this time we can also provide access to digital editions in copyright from other libraries’ collections through the Hathi Trust’s Emergency Temporary Access Service. While this emergency temporary access is in place, we cannot circulate overlapping materials in our print collection.
Please note that this expanded access to digital materials in copyright through the Hathi Trust is temporary, and we will not have access in perpetuity to digital materials in copyright beyond the Penn Libraries collections.
For questions about scanning for course reserves, please see our Guide to Copyright and Course Reserves.
