How can I get a scan of a book chapter?

To facilitate access to our course reserves and other library materials, the BMCC Library is continuing to scan chapters by request as part of our Book Chapter Scanning Service.

How To Request

  1. Search for the book in our catalog, OneSearch
    Search box on the BMCC Library homepage for OneSearch. The search term in the box is "Timberlake Chemistry"
  2. Find the book in the list of results and click on the name to see the information about the book OneSearch search results showing results including "General, organic, and biologican chemistry" by Karen Timberlake
  3. You should see this on the screen.
    At this point, you will have to sign in using your CUNY Login (same login information as Blackboard/CUNYFirst) Alert on a OneSearch record saying that "to see more request options, sign in" (you need to sign in)
  4. If chapter scanning is available for this book, you will see a link for "Chapter Scanning Request" After signing in you'll see where it says "Request: Chapter Scanning Request"
    • For books with multiple volumes you will have to let us know which volume Scanning options for books that have multiple volumes. Link says "Request scan from a specific volume" and next to each volume it says "Request a chapter scan from this volume"
  5. Fill out the form and hit "Submit". Please tell us which chapter to scan in the request, otherwise it will delay processing your request.
    Chapter Scanning Request form in OneSearch that you fill out to request a scan.
