New Library Service: ScanDirect

September 24, 2015

As an extension of our Scan on Demand service, the Law Library is now offering a new service to the Yale Law community: ScanDirect.

ScanDirect is designed to provide scans of chapters when you’ve requested material from other libraries, but realize you don’t need the whole book.

ScanDirect will scan portions of books you have requested to have delivered to the Law Library from other libraries on campus, or via Interlibrary Loan / Borrow Direct from libraries beyond Yale.

How to place a request

After you receive an email informing you that a book you requested has arrived at the Law circulation desk, forward that email to with instructions regarding which pages / chapters are to be scanned. Also let us know if you want us to keep the book on hold for you to pick up later. Otherwise it will be sent back to the lending library once we have made the scan.

The scanned item will be delivered to you electronically within two business days, but generally much sooner.

Requests may be made for personal use only and are limited to two chapters or articles from any book or journal, subject to copyright limitations.
