Scan & Deliver

In the middle of April the Bodleian Libraries launched a new service, Scan & Deliver. Instead of requesting a book to be sent from the Book Storage Facility to a library, you can choose to have them scan one chapter, article or 5% of the book for you. Within 24 hours it’ll be put on a server, and you’ll be sent a link to see it online.

The service is still in it’s early days, and is currently only available for Oxford University staff & students – you have to log into SOLO with a Single Sign On account before using it. It costs £4.75 per item, and payment is taken from your PCAS account. If you’ve got any feedback about the service, please e-mail scan@bodleian.ox.ac.uk.
