You may request that Lauinger Library materials uniquely available on microform (microfiche, microfilm or microcard) be scanned and delivered electronically to your desktop. This service is free.
All Microform Scanning Service requests are processed and delivered through ILLiad. Once you have logged in to ILLiad, please fill out the form. Your request will be delivered electronically.

The Microform Scanning Service is only available to Georgetown University Main Campus faculty, students and staff. In order for a request to be eligible, materials must be part of Lauinger Library's microform collection and 50 pages or under in length. Requests for articles or chapters that are already available in full text online, as electronic books or in the Library's print collections will be cancelled. You can request a maximum of six items per day.
The Copyright Law of the United States (Title 17, U.S. Code) governs the making of photocopies or other reproductions of copyrighted material. Under certain conditions specified in the Law, libraries and archives are authorized to furnish a photocopy or other reproductions. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction not be "used for any purpose other than private study, scholarship or research." If a user makes a request for, or later uses, a photocopy or reproduction for purposes in excess of "fair use," that user may be liable for copyright infringement. This institution reserves the right to refuse to accept a copying order if, in its judgment, fulfillment of that order would involve violation of the law.
