See our information page on the digital copy service or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on linking to electronic subscription materials.
For staff who wish to make photocopies of published materials available in the Library for students to access, this can be done - subject to the following restrictions (under the University's CLA licence): -
- the library should own a print copy of the original [use the catalogue to check if we have the item is stock]. Please note that print-offs from electronic journals or eBooks are not covered by the licence for this purpose.
- a copyright cleared copy is purchased by the individual or the School. This can be done through the library's interlibrary loan service . For more information contact email@example.com or call ext 3575
- only one chapter of a book or article from an issue of a journal (or 5% of the book or journal) may be provided for any one course of study.

When you make photocopies, you are responsible for making sure that you are within the terms of the Copyright Designs and Patents Act, 1988. This allows you to make single copies, for your research and private study, of one article from one issue of periodical or a reasonable proportion of a published work. The University's licence with the Copyright Licencing Agency gives additional rights to copy.
