New Digitization Request Service Now Available at U of G

We are excited to announce our new Digitization Request service available to all current U of G students, faculty and staff. In accordance with the University’s copyright guidelinesyou may request that a portion of a physical item in our collection be digitized. Most physical items including books, microform, and journals are available to be digitized.

Want to try it out? Here’s how it works:

  1. Search in Omni. You may want to limit your search using the facets on the left-hand side to “Available in U of G Library” which will return physical items in our collection.
  2. Select the item you’d like to be digitized and click “Sign in.” You’ll be prompted to enter your U of G credentials.
  3. Under the “Get It” heading, you will see “Request a digitized chapter/article/excerpt” if the item is available for digitization.
  4. Fill in the form with as much information as possible.

Once the item is processed, you will receive an email with a link to the digitized content. This may take a few business days. The link will expire after five views or 30 daysIf your digitization request is denied you will receive an email with further instructions.

As always, if you have questions or concerns, please email us at library@uoguelph.ca.
