Document Delivery

What is Document Delivery?

Document Delivery is a method for providing requested materials directly to you by posting them on the Web, rather than mailing or emailing them. When current ERAU faculty, staff, or students request certain types of documents owned by the Hunt Library, the Document Delivery Department scans them as PDFs, posts them on the Web, and sends an email to the patron containing links to the documents. The posted documents can be retrieved from any computer with Internet access.

What Documents Can Be Posted on the Web?

Items that can be provided via Document Delivery include magazine and journal articles, book chapters, tables of contents (TOC), and other short items that meet copyright and space restrictions.

To order items through Document Delivery, please contact Ask a Librarian via

Due to copyright and space restrictions, entire print books cannot be posted via Document Delivery. Please use the Book Request Form to have a book delivered to you.
