Scan on Demand

Scan on Demand is a free service available to only current students and staff at the University.

It enables you to request and obtain scans of book chapters or journal articles from both Holloway and Aldgate Library print collections.

If the item you wish to consult is not in our collections, you will need to request an interlibrary loan.

Watch this short video on what it is and how it works.

Please visit Special Collections to request scans from these collections.

We will scan an extract from a book, or an article from a journal and send it to your London Met email. Please note copyright law prohibits us from scanning more than one chapter of a book or one article per issue of a journal. We cannot scan whole books.

Nothing. This service is provided free of charge for London Met students and staff. However we cannot currently offer this service to alumni or partnership students.

This will depend on the availability of the book you want us to scan – it may be on loan. We will email you the PDF as soon as we can.

We can tell you when we sent you the scan. Please check your Spam folder for an email from Copyright law only allows us to send you the scan once.

Your scanned document is for individual research use only, and may not be shared, distributed, or posted elsewhere online. The ordering process includes the copyright restrictions, which need agreement before the request can proceed. If other students at London Met need to use the same scan, please ask your lecturer to request a scan for the module reading list.
