Scan & Deliver Service

Scan and Deliver Service is a free electronic document delivery service for the University of the Philippines Manila community. In light of the new normal, we are offering this service to help library users who can't go to the library to borrow resources. 

Scan and Deliver Service enables a library user to obtain scans of a book chapter or journal article from the UP Manila libraries’ print collections. When a library user makes a request, we’ll scan the book/s, chapters, and journal articles and deliver them to the user via e-mail to be used for personal study and research.
