A guide to the University of Hawaii Law Library.

Digitization Requests

Digitization Requests

Making a Digitization Request allows you to request 1 chapter, or 10% of a resource, which is within the fair use, copyright guidelines. Make sure to fill out the Digitization Request form with the requested Chapter/Article title, and start to end pages. The item will be electronically sent to you within 1-2 business days.  

The request can be cancelled if the item is missing, or the chapter title and/or page numbers are not specified, or the request exceeds 10% of the resource. If you want to access more chapters of a book, it is best to "Request a Specific Copy" to borrow and pick up the physical book.

What Happens When You Submit a Request?

Once you send these requests, the librarians will receive it and fulfill or cancel the request. 

If you are requesting a digitization, and the item is already Available Online, you will be directed to that electronic copy.  


If you are requesting a physical copy, you will be sent an email from lawcirc[at] to schedule a time to pick up the item during front desk operating hours.  If you do not pick up the item during your scheduled time, we will cancel the hold and you must “Request Specific Copy” on OneSearch again.  If you need to schedule a change in a date and time of pick up, please give us 24 hours notice.  If you have any questions, please contact the Law Library’s circulation desk at 956-7583.
