Scan and Deliver Service

The Library offers a Scan and Deliver service for Ryerson students and employees with a valid OneCard.  Scans of articles and single book chapters may be requested from the print collection when there is no electronic copy available. Documents will be delivered via email.  

Note: If you are a student requesting course readings, please refer to your D2L Course readings list first before submitting a Scan and Deliver request.

Request for material can be made from Search Everything and the Library Catalogue by completing a Scan and Deliver Request Form for each item to be scanned.

This service began on July 24, 2020.

Please note:

  • Copyright and Fair Dealing guidelines restrict the amount of scanning that we can deliver. Patrons can only request one book chapter from each book OR one journal article from each issue to be scanned and delivered electronically.
  • The amount of time it takes to fulfill a request will vary depending on the volume of requests received.

  • The Library is unable to provide Scan and Deliver requests for students of Ryerson University International College (RUIC), or, a student of Ryerson’s Cairo campus of Universities of Canada in Egypt (UCE). UCE students can contact the UofCanada Library for assistance. RUIC students should refer to the Library’s Contactless Pickup service.
