For our remote learners who are unable to take advantage of our local pick up of print books, we are offering a digitization service.  Students may request that portions of print books be scanned.  When signed in to Primo, a link will appear in the PRIMO record that alerts users to this service. Reference books can't be checked out but sections of them can be digitized if you indicate the specific pages or chapters.
