Can librarians scan book chapters and send them to off-campus students?

Hello! I'm currently off-campus for summer vacation, but I'm trying to work on an independent study idea. I was hoping to use a book that the library has, but I'm not physically there or able to be there. Is there any way to access these resources? Specifically I am trying to access chapters (or the whole of) Lauren Berlant's Cruel Optimism.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide that service. However, there are other options available to you. For example, you may be able to find the book available at your local public library. Alternatively, land grant universities (like the University of Minnesota) are supposed to be open to the public. You would probably not be able to check the book out, but you could almost certainly go to a university near you and read its copy there.

All the best,
