Q

What if I want to request a digitisation of something the library does not have?

This relates to staff requests for items to be digitised in Course Resources (Talis).

Answer

If you have a print copy yourself, then create a bookmark (you can do this manually or from a listing on Amazon or another catalogue) and let the library know you have a print copy in the Note to Library section before clicking Create or Create and add to list. When you request a digitisation on this item, your note to the library will accompany your request and a library staff member will get in touch with you to organise a scan of the item you own. 

If you do not have a print copy yourself, the Library will need to purchase one to digitise the relevant section. Again, create a bookmark (either manually or from a listing on Amazon or another catalogue) and let the library know you would like them to purchase a copy in the Note to Library section before clicking Create or Create and add to list. When you request a digitisation on this item, your note to the library will accompany your request. Note: If the library is able to source an electronic version of this item for the collection, your digitisation request will not be fulfilled but you will be sent a link to the electronic version of this item.
