  • Library Scanning Service - Keeping it Legal

    Academic staff who wish to scan copyright material for teaching purposes need to ensure compliance with the University's newly revised HE Licence from the Copyright Licencing Agency. Under the Licence, the Library operates a centralised service for the scanning of required material (individual book chapters, journal articles, etc). Scanned material is made available through the appropriate module reading list on Blackboard Learn.

    In accordance with the Licence, the material must:
    be owned by the University
    not be published by a publisher who has opted out of the Licence
    be restricted only to those students registered for the module
    include a cover sheet indicating that the item meets the requirements of the Licence
    either be no more than 10% of the total publication or one chapter of a book; one article from a journal issue; one paper from conference proceedings, etc.

    Requests for scanning should be sent to your Faculty Subject Librarian. Further details are available on the Scanning Service page.

  • Improved Borrowing Services for All Library Users

    Following on from a survey carried out by the Library, a number of changes to borrowing policies have been introduced. Designed to make it easier for everyone to get the best from Library collections, there's extra focus on enhancing services for students.

    New loan categories have been introduced that increase how long items can be borrowed for:

    Short-loan items are now available for 2 Day Loan
    1 Week items are now available for 2 Week Loan
    Standard loan items can now be borrowed for 2 months

    Fines for items returned late have been updated resulting in a significant reduction in charges that users will pay for overdue items. Additionally, undergraduate students can now borrow an extra 4 standard loans, raising their allowance to 12 standard loans at one time.
