The McMaster Library Digitization Centre is responsible for most digitization projects in the library, focusing on digitizing collections from the McMaster Library. The Digitization Centre is not able to offer digitization services for privately held research materials.

To request digitization for Library held material, please contact the Digitization Manager at Please provide details about the subject area or materials, and any details about teaching or research timelines related to having digital access to materials. All digitization requests will be assessed based on item copyright status, physical condition, privacy concerns (for archival materials only), and current digitization timelines.

For digital copies of book chapters or journal articles available in print at the library, please use our Journal or Chapter Scan service. 

For requests for digital items the library does not own, please use our Interlibrary Loan service that allows current students, staff and faculty to borrow materials from other institutions.

Requests for materials that can be purchased digitally can be submitted through the library's Recommend a book, film or journal form.
