Please log in using your Concordia netname to submit a request.

In compliance with the Canadian Copyright Act, generally this service can scan a journal article or a book chapter for you, but not multiple chapters from one book or multiple articles from one journal issue.

Articles and chapters from Concordia's collection of books and print or microform periodicals (e.g., journals, magazines, newspapers and conferences), as well as the front and back matter from print books, can be scanned and emailed to you as a PDF attachment. Please note that bound periodicals and periodicals on microform cannot be transferred to Vanier Library or Webster Library for pickup at this time.

If you want to request a journal article or a book from another (non-Concordia) library or institution, use the Interlibrary Loans service.

This service should not be used for requesting materials for course reserves. To put material on course reserve, log in here.

Who can use this service?

Concordia primary users (currently registered students, faculty, retired faculty, and staff) in good standing can use the service, which is free.
