Dear Mr. Liawatimena,

You must submit your request in writing (email is fine) to the publisher
(or copyright holder) specifying exactly what you want to do.  Even though
the content may only be viewed, it may be subject to a royalty.  The
publisher can tell you that.  If emails don't work, try fax.  In any
event, the copyright holder MUST approve anything of this nature.  If
you've sent anything to Lippincott Williams & Wilkins and haven't had a
response, please let me know.

Would you mind to tell me how to deal with copyright when we want to scan
a whole book into digital format? I have tried to send emails to
publishers, but no response.

The digital book version will be limited just for viewing (cannot be
printed) and will be used for internal students from the university only.

Thank you very much in advance for your kind attention and help.
