Scanning Commentaries

Use the link below this text to request scans of commentaries that are not available as eBooks on our eBook Resources page! We can scan sections of requested commentaries within copyright compliance if you are at a location that does not provide adequate access to acceptable commentary resources. We will not scan more than three commentaries per student at one time. Turnaround time also depends on student worker assistance, so please plan accordingly.
