Scan on Demand

UT Libraries: Article or Chapter Scan on Demand

Don’t have time to go to the library and copy articles you need? We will scan print and microform materials and deliver as PDFs to your email account. All UTK faculty, students, and staff may use this service at no charge.

Need to borrow a book or some other library material? Use our Library Express services, which can allows you schedule a loan for delivery/pickup or submit a scan on demand request.
