Vendor Digitization Request Policy


Vendors often request from the library selected print volumes for the purpose of digitizing a journal back file.    It is the policy to comply with these requests, charging a set fee of $100 per requested volume.   The Woodruff Library ILL Team will process requests.


If you receive a request from a vendor to borrow print volumes for digiziation,  please forward the requedst to Chuck Spornick,  Head, Collection Management.  Below is an outline of the how these requests are treated:

  1. Forward request to CM head
  2. CM Head will notify:  subject librarian and the head of ILL
  3. Request is considered approved unless it is vetoed by the subject librarian
  4. ILL will coordinate the loan with the vendor
