When in search of a missing page I often look up the book in Worldcat and ask libraries that hold the edition I want if they will scan the pages for me. I always tell them it is for PG and DP. Some libraries have set up reproduction services as a revenue stream, and those typically have very restricted licences. The following libraries have been known to provide useable images for DP and often PG, mostly hi-res scans. Different libraries within an organization, or even different librarians may have different policies.


The definition of "Republishing" is uncertain. I say that adding a B&W proofing image to DP is not republishing, and I have never had a librarian say no to that. Adding a hi-res illustration to PG clearly violates many of the republishing restriction clauses that I have read.

Some libraries have declined or charge, more often a library that does not want to scan will just ignore the request. I do not have a record of the libraries where I have filled in the web form and not gotten a response.
