What is Scan and Send?

Request a Scan, or "Scan and Send," is a service through which Emerson College faculty, students, and staff can request PDF versions of Emerson-owned print articles and book chapters. Scanned PDFs are sent to your Emerson email. Only 1 chapter per book, or 1 article per periodical, may be requested at a time.

About Scan Requests

To assist you in your individual research, Iwasaki Library staff can scan selections from the items in our collections for you. In accordance with copyright law, requested selections must constitute only small portions of the work; in most cases, this means one article in a periodical or one chapter of a book per request.

All current Emerson students, faculty, and staff may submit scan requests. Please submit requests in order of priority.

Items not eligible for scanning:

 

About Storage Requests

Some Emerson items are stored in staff-only areas or in off-site storage. Current Emersonians may request access to these items through the Request a Scan Form.

In-House Storage items typically are retrieved within 3-5 business days; Off-Site Storage items typically arrive at Emerson within 7-10 business days. Note: due to COVID-19-related closures, these items may be significantly delayed. 

 

For assistance with Scan Requests or Storage Requests, please contact the library at library@emerson.edu.
