Some libraries at Harvard do not offer Scan & Deliver service. If you don't see a "Scan & Deliver" link, you might:

-Check if it's held by another library that does offer Scan & Deliver (make sure to click "show [x] more items..." to see full holdings for each library, and keep in mind that there are also sometimes multiple Hollis records for the same journal)

-Check if the journal you're interested in is available online, through Borrow Direct, or through Interlibrary Loan. (Click here for more on each of these three options. Harvard affiliates can request materials from other Harvard libraries through ILL.) 

You may need to consult the journal in print instead of requesting a scan. Most of Harvard's libraries have self-serve scanners. (Use the "amenities" menu on the left side of the Find A Library page to see a list of libraries that have scanners.)

If the journal you're interested in is at Countway Library (Harvard Medical School), you can either order through ILL (click on the link above) as though the item were at a non-Harvard library, for which you can expect the standard ILL turnaround time. In a rush? You may wish to use their speedier, fee-based scanning service called Countway Express.
