Terms of PETDOR Service Expansion
PETDOR + Mail is an augmentation of the Pilot Emergency Temporary Digitization on Request (PETDOR) service. PETDOR + Mail addresses the need for physical books and monographs from UCLA-owned circulating collections. The Library will fill requests for physical materials not available in the HathiTrust Digital Library via direct delivery to domestic shipping addresses (campus addresses and P.O. Boxes are excluded). Priority is reserved for cases where an entire publication is required for critical, time-sensitive research and publication. Chapters of books and journal articles from UCLA circulating collections will remain digitized on demand via PETDOR. Materials not eligible for the shipping and digitization services include manuscripts, special collections, non-general collections materials, and materials from affiliate libraries and centers.
Please note: During the pilot phase of the digitization service (PETDOR) and the shipping service (PETDOR + Mail), priority will be given to requests from UCLA graduate students working under practical deadlines, followed by early-career faculty, followed by early career researchers. Our intention is to grow service capacity over time, adding additional users as we review the demand for services.
Expansion and continuation of these services will be subject to change based on safety, cost, and scalability.
