Support for Teaching: Scanned Extracts

Requesting Scanned Extracts

Current licensing arrangements allow the Library to scan UK and US-published journal articles and book extracts for students enrolled on a particular module.

Not all readings can be scanned. The CLA licence only allows scanning from print originals. These must be either:

  • Print originals owned by the university (normally the Library), or
  • 'Copyright cleared' copies requested by the Library from the British Library.

The following conditions also apply:

  • The book or journal must not already be available online
  • Each extract must be no more than 10% or one whole chapter of a book; or no more than one article from a single issue of a journal. 

Until July 2021 the CLA is permitting 2 chapters or 20% per abstract 

  • The book or journal must be published in the UK or US. Exceptions apply but Library staff will check before proceeding.

The Library has a responsibility to provide this service to ensure a copyright statement is added and reporting details are made to the CLA which in turn ensures author payment.

To avail of this service, please contact your subject librarian.
