Where only a single chapter of a book, an article from a journal, or microform material is required, we provide a “scan-on-demand” service. Please note that scanned materials are subject to fair dealing guidelines and that this service is available to faculty, graduate & undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, affiliated researchers, staff, and alumni only.

We will contact you by email once materials have been processed.

  1. Find the item you need in Omni.
  2. Click on the link to the Scan-on-Demand form and complete it.
  3. Library staff will retrieve the item, use a digital scanner to create a PDF file of the required section, and email it directly to your uOttawa email address.

For course reserves scanning requests, please contact

For materials located in the Archives and Special Collections unit, please contact
