Textbooks Fall 2020

During USF St. Petersburg's COVID response, for USF St. Petersburg students who cannot come to campus, you can request for the book to be scanned.

  • If the library owns a title in print, place a request for scanning here. (Students new to ILLIAD will need to set up a new account.)
  • Navigate to "book/chapter request", fill in the form, and submit request (Include book title, author, page numbers, and edition.)
  • Due to fair use and copyright limitations, we can only scan 15% of the textbook.
  • Scans will be sent to your current USF email.
  • Due to limited staffing capabilities, there could be a delay in your request. Please submit requests one week in advance to ensure timely processing.

Scanned copies of select chapters from print textbooks are available to USF St. Petersburg instructors only.

  • To request scanned textbook chapters, please complete the Course Reserve Scanning Form.
  • Scanned files are made available for your professor to upload in their Canvas course.
  • Due to copyright laws, the USF St. Petersburg campus library is unable to scan in an entire course textbook. For more information about your fair use rights and copyright questions, please visit:
