Digitization Requests


If you need part of a book in the COD Library and don’t want to head to campus, you can place a digitization request and have the content you need scanned and emailed to you.

Digitization Policies

  • Requests can be made by COD students, faculty, and staff.
  • Up to two chapters or similar length range of pages can be requested per title.
  • A maximum of five concurrent requests can be placed. 
  • A maximum of 50 requests can be placed per semester.
