    For guests who cannot come to library to access the books, they will be offering a free look-up service. If you provide the title or call number of the book, along with the page numbers you want to have copied, they will email you a PDF copy. They ask that you be as specific as possible since we are unable, due to copyright restrictions, to copy a large number of pages from any 1 book. Please keep in mind that this is not a research service.
