Ask a Librarian
University of Vermont faculty, staff and students may request scans of articles and book chapters from materials available in University of Vermont Bailey/Howe Library regular print and microform collections. Interlibrary Loan (ILL) staff will scan articles or book chapters and deliver them as a PDF to users' Illiad accounts.
This service is currently offered free of charge.
The Library has established copyright guidelines based on the copyright law of the United States and current practices in other academic libraries.
"The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted materials. Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship, or research".
If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use", that user many be liable for copyright infringement.
In order to operate within the guidelines of "fair use" while striving to provide access to research materials, copyright policies for article and book chapter requests are as follows.
The Library will not scan:
Users who need more than one chapter from a book or article from a journal issue are encouraged to visit the Library to use these materials in person.
Items are usually delivered in 2-3 business days.
Articles will be delivered in PDF format to requestors' ILLIAD accounts. Users will receive an email notification when an article has been scanned and delivered to their account. Once delivered, articles are stored for 30 days.
Requests are placed in your Illiad account. After logging in, choose Document Delivery request and fill out the form with citation information.
A separate request must be placed for each article or chapter to be scanned.
First time Illiad users should register for an account here.
