Digitsation

  • The University has signed up to the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) licence that permits the digitisation of print copies of journal articles and book chapters published in the UK (with some exceptions). You can visit the CLA website to find out more.
  • To make a digitisation request, please follow instructions below.
  • The library will request permission directly from the publisher if more than one chapter is required from a book or more than one article is requested from any journal issue. Adding a second chapter/article can be very expensive.
  • Please note it can take up to 2 weeks for a digitisation request to be completed. 
  • Although the licence allows copying for education there are some works excluded from all CLA licences. To check permissions to ensure it is covered for the purpose (digital, photocopying, and scanning), simply go on to the CLA website to use the 'Check Permissions Tool'.
