Request scans of Stevenson materials!

Did you know that you can request scans of Stevenson Library materials? If you need a single chapter of a book, an article from one of our print periodicals, or a section of a reference book, simply place a request through ILLiad.

Fill out either the book chapter or article request ILLiad form and you’ll receive an email notification from ILLiad when your document is ready. Requests will be filled within 1-3 business days. This service is intended to increase access to our collection while the library building is closed.

Due to copyright restrictions we are not able to scan entire books for our patrons. If you need more than a few chapters of a book please consider checking it out through our contactless pickup system.

Questions about this service can be directed to Shea Wert at swert@bard.edu.
