Q. Scanning material for Blackboard Fall 2020

I was told that it should be possible to receive permission to copy several chapters from [a book] to put on Blackboard for my course. Could you please tell me how I go about making this arrangement?


First, look for items in the libraries collections that may be available online either through HathiETAS or other e-book source. These are the best options for providing links in Blackboard.

If an online version is not available, you can suggest a purchase to inquire about additional online options.

Alternatively, you can request scanning from the physical copy in a couple of ways.

1. If you anticipate needing multiple sections from a single item, you may wish to place the items on reserve by sending a completed reserve request form to your Reserve Liaison. They will retrieve available items and hold them in the library where they will be available for us to fulfill scanning requests from you and your students during the semester.  The can also suggest a purchase for items that are not available.

2. Students will be able to search for the items in Course Reserves as usual by going to the Library Catalog and clicking the Course Reserves tab. Then, to request section scans, see Document Delivery.

3. While copyright restrictions prohibit the libraries from scanning an entire book, each student and instructor may request Document Delivery from a KU-owned book (1 section per request). In the Notes field of the document delivery request form, record “course reserve request” and the course number.
