The Libraries will now deliver articles electronically to your desktop!
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.
To make a request, use the Scan & Deliver request form within your ILL Services account. You may request one article per journal issue or one chapter per book. Complete the form and submit the request. That's all there is to it! You will be notified via email when the article is available.
Through Interlibrary Loan (ILL) borrowers may obtain books, articles, and other materials not held in the University System of Maryland and Affiliated Institutions (USMAI) system.
