Scan & Deliver: New service from the Bodleian Libraries

Today the Bodleian Libraries launch Scan & Deliver, a service offering an electronic document delivery solution for over six million items held in our Book Storage Facility.  This pilot will be available for current members of the University.

Requests will be placed through SOLO.   The Scan & Deliver option will be offered only for eligible items and will only be visible after an Oxford Single Sign On log in.  The same copyright regulations will apply as with our existing reading room and reprographics services (one article from a journal issue, one chapter or 5% of a book.); you will need to specify which section you require.

Once processed, the scan will be posted on a server and you will receive an email including a link to the scan.  The Scan & Deliver team will usually fulfil the request within 24 hours although this turnaround time does not account for weekends and any University holidays.  Each request will incur a flat rate fee of £4.75 with payment managed through PCAS (printing, copying, and scanning) accounts.  This cost reflects an unsubsidized estimated cost, which will be reviewed in future against actual costs and take-up.
