Research Commons compiles services supporting high level research under one umbrella, expanding the boundaries of the traditional library. Our goal is to connect researchers with virtual services and to bring them together in our developing spaces
The Scan & Deliver service delivers digital copies of journal articles and book chapters to you within three business days of your request (provided they are available in print on the UM Libraries' shelves.) In the event that an article or chapter you request is not available on campus, Scan & Deliver will automatically refer the request to Interlibrary Loan. This service is free of charge and available to UMD Faculty, Staff, Undergraduate, and Graduate Students.
Congratulations! Your latest research has been accepted for publication in a prestigious journal, but before you blindly sign the publisher agreement, are you retaining the necessary rights under copyright to use your work yourself? Perhaps not.
