For scanned articles and book chapters from the University of Bath Library 

The Library offers a request service for copies of journal articles and book chapters from our print collections.  These are scanned and then sent to your University email address.

The service is open to all students and staff of the University of Bath and to External Members of the Library.

How do I make a request?

Before submitting, please check that your request falls within copyright law limits (a single article or book chapter; or 5% of the whole item; whichever is greater).  You can submit a request by either one of the following methods:

1. Complete a Bath Copies Request Form: attach and email the completed form to the Inter-Library Loans Service


2. Use the Library Catalogue as follows: 

What happens next?
You will receive an email containing a link to the scanned copy. You will need your Computing Services username and password to access the file. The link will remain active for 7 calendar days before being deleted. The document is for your use only and you must not forward or share it with others.

What if the Library does not hold the item I need?

Please note, we cannot offer a print service for content from the Library's e-resources.  If you need materials which are not in Library stock nor available online, please see the Inter-Library Loans Service.
