Staff Guide to Reading Lists Online

Request Digitisation

You can request digitisation of book chapters, journal articles and other documents via your reading list. The Library will create the scan (pdf) and attach it to your list.

This is a great way of providing online access to a resource for remote learning during the pandemic because your module's entire student cohort may view the scan simultaneously.

Watch video or follow guidelines below.

You may request scans from multiple journals and books. But, under the terms of the Copyright Licensing Agency, we are usually only allowed to digitise for a given module one article from any individual journal, one chapter from any individual book, or up to 10% of the whole book (whichever is greater).

It is advisable that you add the record of the item you wish to digitise to your reading list beforehand, if you are not sure how to do that, look at the section "Add Items".
