You may request a digital scan of Auraria Library materials, such as book chapters and microfilmed articles. We will create a PDF scan of the material and deliver it to you through the Interlibrary loan (ILLiad} software.

The process will take 1 – 3 days if the material is readily available. You will receive an email notification when your scan is ready.
