Document Delivery Request Form

  • The Library is happy to provide documents indexed, cited or abstracted, but not available in full text within its subscribed electronic resources, subject to the scope of the library’s Electronic document delivery service protocol and within the limits of U.S. Copyright Law (Title 17, United States Code).

    Guidelines for Assessing Document Delivery Charges

    Doctoral Program
    10 Documents
    Graduate School
    5 Documents
    2 Documents
    1 Document

    Exceptions:  A decision to either purchase fewer or to purchase more than the stated limits for each  of the above levels provided in the above guidelines may be made based solely upon the Document Delivery Librarian’s professional assessment of the stated need for each request, as provided by the patron on the Document Delivery Request Form.

    Unnecessary Requests: It is important to conduct as much of your own research as possible. Documents requested through the document delivery service that are determined by document delivery staff to be readily available in full text without cost (through any of the library’s various databases, or through a basic internet search such as a Google Scholar search) will incur a $50.00 service charge in place of the document charge, and will be counted against a patron’s calendar year limit.

    Instructions: Please submit ONE form for each item you are requesting. You must provide a complete citation in order for the library to fulfill your request.

  • NOTE: The library does not provide resources that originate from citations obtained from non-Keiser University Library subscribed, or unidentified sources.
  • PLEASE NOTE: Document Delivery Requests are filled Monday-Thursday (holidays excluded) typically in the afternoon hours of Eastern Standard Time. You can normally expect to receive a response to your request within a day or two; however, it may be as many as 4 days for requests submitted on a Friday or weekend. Resources that are only available in hard copy must first be photocopied and then scanned in order to be e-mailed which may take a significant amount of additional time. Submitted requests are placed in a que in the order in which they are received, and are filled (as time and staffing permits) via e-mail to official;;; and e-mail addresses ONLY. The library does not provide resources that must be purchased with a foreign currency.

    Warning Concerning Copyright Restrictions
    The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States 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 reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to 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 the order would involve violation of copyright law.

    By sending this request, I agree to comply with the Copyright Notice above.
