Book Scanning & the COVID-19 Outbreak

A new addition has been made to our current services to offset the COVID-19 crisis effects on your studies and research. We are starting a scan-on-demand service for the Graduate Institute Library’s printed holdings (on a trial basis and within the limits of our resources).

Please note that copyright law forbids us from scanning and sharing whole books. Our staff can only scan relevant chapters or articles you may need up to a limit of 3 chapters (100 pages). 

How to request a scan

For book chapters, please send an e-mail to library@graduateinstitute.ch indicating the title of the book, its call numbers as found on RERO Explore, and the chapters or pages you would need scanned.

For journal articles, please send an e-mail to library@graduateinstitute.ch specifying the title of the journal, its call number (usually “P ./…”) the volume and issue, and the title of the article.

You should receive the requested chapters or articles within 2 working days.
