Placing a Request
Option 1 – General Collection Materials
There are restrictions to what items we can provide digital access to. Depending on how the library provides digital access, your loan times may vary. Our internal digitization access for general collection materials is provided via the Digital Library, it lasts for 21 days and is restricted to one user’s University credentials.
- Is it already available? For general collection materials (circulating library items), using the Library’s Easy Search option may help you locate existing digital access provided by the U of I.
- If you locate an item in the Library Catalog that does not have existing digital access, and the “Request: Request Digitization of Entire Work” option is available to you in the Library Catalog‘s “Get It” area — it is free to use for University of Illinois affiliates. If you are only interested in a portion of the item, please use a DocExpress option.
For assistance with general collections requests via the library catalog, please contact Digitization Services at firstname.lastname@example.org
Option 2 – Special Collection Materials
For all other digitization requests, such as those for materials that are held by one of the Library’s Special Collection’s, for publication quality images, or unaffiliated scholars.
- Please contact the home library unit that stewards the materials you are inquiring upon, if they are not circulating materials — this is any item that does not have options available to you in the library catalogue to request.
- Library content liaisons or patrons can complete the Reproduction Request Form below. Please review our fee schedule (temporarily paused due to COVID-19 considerations) and guidelines for reproduction of library materials. For assistance please contact Digitization Services at email@example.com – (217) 244-2062
