New Bodleian Library service Scan and Deliver

By | 17 April 2012

Scan and Deliver may be of interest – and use – to those of our readers doing research in areas beyond the normal boundaries of law as it is an electronic document delivery service for items held in the Bodleian Book Storage Facility in Swindon.

At present, it is at a pilot stage and consequently only available to current members of the University – that is those with an Oxford Single Sign On.

How Scan and Deliver works.

Requests will be placed through the SOLO platform.   The Scan & Deliver option will be offered only for eligible items and will only be visible after you have signed into SOLO with your Oxford Single Sign On..

The usual copyright regulations apply:  a maximum of 1 article from a journal issue; one chapter or 5% (whichever is greater) of a book.

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.)

Once processed, the scan will be posted on a server and the user will receive an email including a link to the scan.  Turnaround time – normal weekdays – is expected to be within 24 hours.

Much more information is available on the main Bodleian web pages.

Oxford law students are reminded of free scanning service already provided by the LawBod
