Copy or scan request form

If you do not have a Seattle Public Library card, find out how you can get one in our Get Started section. If you do not qualify for a Seattle Public Library card, please contact your local library system about interlibrary loan services.
If we don’t have the material in our collection, would you like us to request it from another library system through Interlibrary Loan? There is a $5 fee for each copy or scan obtained from another library system.

Copyright restrictions


The copyright law of the United States (Title 17, United States Code) governs making 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 the conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction will not 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.

We reserve the right to refuse a copying order if fulfillment of the order would involve violation of copyright law.
