Chapters To You

What is Chapters To You?

The Chapters To You service allows you to request scans of book chapters or journal articles from print materials that are not available while access to the Library shelves is restricted due to Covid19. You do not have to come on to campus. Place your request, we will scan the journal article or book chapter and send you a pdf for your own personal use.

  • You can request up to 5 items a week to be scanned.
  • We will email the items to your university email address.
  • The service is open to all students and staff at Teesside University.
  • We aim to deliver your request within 2 working days, but there are times when this will not be possible, for example if the book is on loan.

How do I make a request?

Before submitting your request, please check Discovery to make sure the item is not already available electronically.

Does your request fall within copyright law?:

  • One single chapter from a book
  • One single article from an issue of a journal.
