Scan on Demand
Do you need help gathering your research? Strapped for time? Let the Law Library HELP! We will scan and email to you print materials you need from the Law Library or any of the ASU Libraries for free. We will email you your requests usually within 48 hours or sooner.  This service is available to Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law degree seeking students.

What kinds of things can I ask to be scanned?

  • Book Chapters (a single chapter from a particular book)
  • Journal articles (one article from a single volume of a journal title)
  • Microform Materials
  • Tables of Contents & Indexes
  • Other selected pages

Please note that we may not be able to scan fragile items. All requests are subject to copyright compliance.

To make a request, please visit the Scan on Demand FAQ.

Delivery on Demand
Out of town and need a library book? Wish you had the right resource? Check out our new Delivery on Demand service.  Delivery on Demand is a free book delivery service that enables Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law degree seeking students to request and obtain circulating books from the Law Library’s print collections. Requested books will be delivered to you within the continental United States and Canada via the United States Postal Service’s Priority mail service.  To make a request, please visit the Delivery on Demand FAQ.

20-Minute Trainings
Do you need help with your research? Has your study group hit a wall? Let the Library help! Ross-Blakely Law Library reference librarians can provide a customized 20-Minute Training on a variety of topics, skills and databases for you and up to three of your colleagues.  Examples of sessions include HeinOnline, non-legal databases, advanced searching for cases, and researching a paper topic.  You can also provide us with a topic of your choice. To learn more or to make an appointment, please visit the 20-Minute Trainings FAQ.

We hope you use all of our new services.  Have a great semester!
