Library scanning and enquiry services

If you can't get to the IHR, we are pleased to offer a scanning and enquiry service, subject to staff availability.

We aim to provide a limited, free copying and enquiry service, including for example:  

  • Scanning short sections 
  • Downloading records from electronic resources 
  • Help with looking up and checking references

Please note that this is a temporary service to help people who can't travel during the pandemic. We may need to change things at short notice should our capacity become stretched or the situation with Covid-19 change. There may be some delay in supplying materials.

  • Individual readers will only be able to order a limited amount of material, and we will usually only be able to provide copies up to article/chapter length. 
  • There will generally be a limit of 30 minutes to any reference enquiry work.
  • In general, we hope to supply materials within two weeks.
  • Materials may be unavailable due to copyright and intellectual property, conservation or other reasons.
  • Scans can be provided in Jpeg or PDF format. We can supply colour images if this is helpful.

Please email ihr.library@sas.ac.uk with details of your requirements. Copies will be for personal use only. Please enquire further if you require permission to publish.
