Providing access to material electronically

Would it help your students if you were able to provide access to a book chapter or journal article electronically?

If so, the HE scanning licence may be able to help. The Scanning licence enables the digitisation of material published in the UK and some US published material within copyright law. This can help support students undertaking a particular module and increase the circulation of key extracts.

Within Information Services, we have a budget to allow us to acquire PDFs of chapters and articles that fulfil the requirements of the licence. We can then provide a link to the digitised extract through the online reading list system or embedded within a WebCT module.

If you would like more information on this service, please contact us.
