Digitisation and copyright

Digitising key resources ensures access to high demand items for your students. The digitisation service can provide digital copies of a range of resources. The digitised items are accessible online via Library Reading Lists.


Copyright Guidance

Copyright Guide

The Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) Higher Education Licence enables us to digitise materials for teaching purposes. There are limitations around what and how much information may be digitised. 

Please remember that you must not scan and upload copyrighted material to Library reading lists yourself. This would be a copyright infringement and could result in legal action against the person who made the scan, the University, or both.

Requests for the digitisation of copyrighted material must be made via Library Reading Lists to comply with the license.  Find out more about digitisation and how to make a request by reading the Library Digitisation Guide. Your Academic Liaison Librarian can provide advice about the application process for digitising key extracts.
