Tutors can submit digitisation requests to The Library - Working within copyright regulations, we will digitise book chapters and journal articles and link them to the relevant Blackboard module for your students to access.
Digitisation is a process that allows The Library to produce copyright-cleared electronic versions of key book chapters and journal articles. Most book chapters or journal articles can be requested and digitised. However, The Library must comply with the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) and so all requested items must meet the following regulations:
More information can be found on the Information Governance web pages.
We cannot digitise material that is already available electronically from the library.
Use Library Search to check that the item is not already available electronically. If you cannot find the item make a digitisation request in one of two ways:
When the item is part of a reading list for a module you can request digitisation via the Reading List system. The digitised items will become available on the BlackBoard module site and a link will appear in the reading list.
Complete an online form to provide access to material for students on a module away from their formal reading list. The Library will process the form and add the digitised item to the requested Blackboard module.
