Faculty Guide to Library Resources and Services During COVID-19 Pandemic: Request Digital Texts and Videos for Course

A Note on Copyright

In order to better support remote student access to class materials, we are digitizing many of those materials under the Fair Use provision of the Copyright Act. To avoid copyright violations, any materials digitized by the library or by the faculty must be restricted to class members only and must be removed from Box and/or Moodle no later than May 5, 2020. See instructions below.

Let's Get Digital

Please complete the Digitization Request Form below. This form may be used for texts or videos. Once you have submitted the form, we will check for freely-available electronic versions. If we cannot access an electronic version, we will try to digitize the item for you.​

Digitized items will be uploaded to Box, and the faculty member will be notified via email when they are available. 

Have questions? Need help? Please work with your liaison librarian. We can help guide you through this process.
