Scan & Deliver Service

Staff and students of  MTU Kerry can now make a request for items that are available in the library print collections and receive it electronically within copyright guidelines. 

  1. The Library must own a copy of the item in order to be able to fulfill the request and you need to check first to see if it is available on the library catalogue here.
  2. If it is, proceed to submit your request here and we will scan and deliver it to you via email.

What can I request?

You can request:

  • one chapter of a book
  • one article from a journal issue/magazine
  • one scene from a play
  • one report of a single case from a volume of judicial proceedings
  • one short story, poem or play (up to 10 pages) of an anthology
  • OR 10% of the total publication, whichever is the greater


Copyright Information

All requests must be compliant with copyright law. You can request scans of book chapters and journal articles available in the Library’s print collections. If there is an electronic copy available via the library online resources, a link will be provided to you.

When making a request, the requester agrees that by submitting a request they are also agreeing to the conditions in the copyright declaration below:

  • That the material is required for the purpose of research for a non-commercial purpose or for private study
  • That they have not previously been supplied with a copy of the same material by MTU Kerry or any other library
  • That they will not use the copy except for research for a non-commercial purpose or private study and will not supply a copy of it, by any means to another person
  • That to the best of their knowledge no one with whom they work or study has made or intends to make, at or about the same time as this request, a request for substantially the same material for substantially the same purpose
  • That only a single paper copy will be retained and the electronic copy will be destroyed if the item is printed
  • That if the declaration is false in a material particular the copy supplied will be an infringing copy and the requester will be liable for the infringement as if they made it themselves.‚Äč
