Q. Is it possible to request digital scans of books?


Due to the current corona measures it is temporarily possible to request digital scans of books. We do however need to take copyright laws into account and aren't able to scan more than a handful of pages at a time.

You can make your requests via uitleen@library.leidenuniv.nl. Make sure to mention the following:

1. Your student number

2. The full title or a link to the item in our catalogue

3. The specific pages or chapter you wish to view

The process of scanning and sending could take up to a couple of days. Once finished you will receive your request items in your e-mail.
