When the Olin reserves unit makes decisions about how much to scan, we look at whether or not a market exists to buy or license the work in conjunction with the quantity that we have been asked to scan. We will generally scan up to 15-20% of a book when it is still in print and readily available for purchase. We will also license an eBook, when available, and link it to the Ares course. For out of print or rare books, we may scan 20-30% but we will not scan the majority or entirety of a print book that is still within copyright.
