The Library offers a digitisation service to departments, which enables us to request the digitisation of book chapters and journal articles, providing students with improved access to material in high demand.
The University has signed the Copyright Licensing Agency's (CLA) Higher Education Licence which authorises the Library to digitise book chapters and journal articles on behalf of the University. Please note that only the Library is authorised to digitise as specific licence requirements must be met. The licence does not permit anyone else to digitise.
How does the service work?
Add the item that you would like digitised to the relevant module reading list.  Add a library note saying "Please digitise chapter [details]..." then click Publish and Request Review.  Please see the Reading List Support Libguide for more instructions on how to do this.
Each book chapter or journal article is supplied as a file which opens in your browser, and can be downloaded to a PDF file. The file is hosted on the Copyright Licensing Agency's Digital Content Store. A link to the file is placed into the relevant module reading list.  Access will be via the University single sign-on service.  Links to the files can also be added to module pages in the VLE.
Please note that digitised material is for use ONLY by students registered on the relevant course of study. For more information please contact
