Unaffiliated User Terms and Conditions

    The unaffiliated user option is a way for patrons without an ISU NetID or an ISU Library Card, document suppliers, and non-library organizations to request scans from the Parks Library’s print collections.  There is a $15.00 base fee for each document supplied up to 20 pages, with an additional 10 cents per page thereafter.  The following conditions apply:


    • Requests must fall under the Fair Use guidelines of U.S. copyright law.
    • Unaffiliated users cannot borrow books and other library materials (but may submit interlibrary loan requests to borrow through a local library).


    Services are billed monthly and payment is by credit card only (VISA, Mastercard, or Discover).

    In order to submit requests as a new unaffiliated user, please contact us at borrdesk@iastate.edu for further information.
