Clark Library's Interlibrary Loan service, UP ILLiad, can supply you with scans from items in our and other libraries' collections:
Alternatively, you can request book chapter scans through the library catalog.
You will receive an email when PDFs are available within your UP ILLiad account, on average within three days. The PDFs stay in your account for 30 days; we recommend downloading them to your computer.
This service is available at no charge to current UP students, faculty, and staff.

To abide by copyright law, Clark Library considers four factors of Fair Use, including "the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole." Staff also consult copyright guidelines.
