What is Scan and Deliver? Scan and Deliver is an article and book chapter delivery service. When you need an article from a journal or a chapter from a book which is owned by the library only in print or microformat, we will scan the article/book chapter and deliver it to you electronically through your ILLiad account.
What can be requested? Articles (up to 25 pages) from journals held by the campus Libraries which are in print or microform, as well as book chapters.
What cannot be requested? Materials in Special Collections and Archives and items on Reserve are not available for scanning through Scan and Deliver.
Who is eligible? Furman University students, faculty, and staff are eligible for this service.
How do I submit a request? To submit a request, log into your ILLiad account and click the new request link for either article or book chapter. Fill in your citation information and submit your request.
How will I receive my requests? When your scanned article or book chapter is available, you will receive an e-mail notification directing you to log into your ILLiad account to retrieve the scan. The scanned material will remain in your account and be available for viewing for 30 days.
How long will it take to fill my request? We strive to fill requests on the same day they are received, excluding weekends and holidays. However, depending on the number of requests received on any given day, it may take up to 24 hours for requests to be filled.
How much does it cost? Scan and Deliver is provided by the Interlibrary Loan Department to the Furman University community free of charge.
How many requests can I submit per day? At this time, there is no limit on the number of requests you can make.
Do you offer color scans or just black and white? Scans are provided in black and white. However, color scans are available upon request.
For further information, please contact Elaina Griffith by e-mail or phone (864-294-2198) during office hours: 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. This is an exciting new service, and we urge you to take advantage of it. We hope you will find that it makes your research process less stressful and more productive.
