Music Library Guide: Scanning Requests

This guide is a central portal to all Music Library services.

Requesting scanning and Electronic Delivery of Print Material


Lamont students, faculty, staff, and alumni may request electronic scanning of print materials (books and scores) from the Music Library for delivery in PDF format.

We can scan up to 50% of a print title. If your needs exceed that, contact us at musiclibrary@du.edu for troubleshooting assistance. 

Please note: this process is ONLY for items located in the Music Library! Scans of items at located in AAC or Hampden must be requested using the "Book Chapter Request" option in the Interlibrary Loan form

 

Finding and Requesting Items

Search for your physical library item using the Compass search bar (click here), and click to open the record.

 

 

If you are not already signed in, use your DU ID and password to log into your library account.

 

 

The status of the item will appear on the right hand side.

 

 

To request a scan of the item, click on the Request link.

 

 

In the notes field of your request, enter: “I would like a scan of [specific portion of the work].” Please specify the portion you want scanned by listing a movement number, chapter title, or page numbers if known. (We can scan up to 50% of a print title. If your needs exceed that, contact us at musiclibrary@du.edu for troubleshooting assistance.)

 

 

You can normally expect to receive a scan from musiclibrary@du.edu within 48 hours of placing your request. Contact us at musiclibrary@du.edu if you do not receive your scan, or if you have any questions.
