Document Delivery (Electronic and Print)

E-mail our document delivery team ( with citation information for the articles or books that you need. We will provide electronic copies of materials to you whenever possible, including scanning print journal articles or book chapters, and we will deliver physical books to your office mailbox. If an item is not available in Penn's collection, we submit an Interlibrary Loan request on your behalf and deliver the item upon arrival. We can also pick up items that need to be returned to the library - just leave them in your mailbox or at the front desk of your department, and email us with the number of items for pickup.

DocDel is staffed Monday through Friday. Expect items within Penn's collection to get to you within 24 hours. Items ordered from our institutional partners may take several days to arrive.

Note that we adhere to US copyright laws, including Fair Use, so we may be limited in the amount we can scan from a single journal issue or book.
