Since the library is unable to lend materials during the quarantine, we are offering to scan materials that cannot be found in digital format. Due to copyright regulations, we can only scan up to 15% of each book at one time. You may make more than one request, but please be aware that we have limited staff available to fill your requests. 


For submitting requests, you need to have your own library account. Please follow the instructions if you need to create it.

To request a scan, search for the item you need on JCU Discovery (the Library's catalog). Click on the title:


Discovery will display the details for the item. Check the information under “View Description” to find the chapter(s) you need.  




Then scroll down to “Check Availability” and click on the “Hold Request” button. 


You will be asked to sign-in. Enter the barcode from your JCU ID card, and the password you selected when you created your library account. A form will be displayed. Include the selected chapter(s) in the “Item Description(s)/Notes”, and tell us approximately what date you need the scans by.  




Your scans will be sent to you via email. If you have any questions, please email
