The Library offers a scanning service for teaching staff - we will scan book chapters and journal articles and deliver them as PDF files to be included in your VLE courses. The service will operate under the terms of the CLA Higher Education Licence. The conditions include: - limits on the amount of any one publication that may be copied (per module: one chapter or 10% of a book; one journal article from a journal issue) - only material published in certain countries may be scanned: UK, US, Australia, Canada, and other countries on the Scanning Mandate Territories list - copyright notices must be included in all scanned material You may request material to be scanned which does not belong to the University but there is an extra copyright fee charged for this. The fee is about £20 for a book chapter, so we may decide to buy the book instead of paying the copyright fee. Journal articles cost between £12 and £35; we may request that the copyright fee is paid by your department. Download a Library scanning service request form (Word format). Please send scanning request forms to firstname.lastname@example.org E-journal articlesIf you want to have e-journal articles made available on your VLE course, please check whether they are available in one of the e-journal collections listed here. You may download articles from these collections yourself and add them to your VLE course. If the e-journal is not in one of these collections, there are some e-journals covered by the CLA Digital Licence - articles from these journals may be requested through the library scanning service. You can check which e-journals are included in the CLA Licence by using the CLA Title Search (select Digital for Usage, and search on the title or the ISSN of the journal). Other optionsAs a member of teaching staff it is possible for you to do your own scanning under the terms of the CLA Scanning Licence to include scanned material in your VLE courses. See What can I scan for the VLE? to check whether what you want to scan is eligible for scanning and read the Full guidelines on how to provide scanned copies under the terms of the CLA Licence for details on how the scanning should be done and recorded. Good practice guidelinesThe CLA Licence is intended to broaden and enrich students’ learning experience, by enabling universities to provide greater and easier access to copyright materials than would otherwise be possible. However, this provision is not intended to be used to create collections of extracts that cover substantively the same material as a standard textbook. These Guidelines (pdf) illustrate good practice in how to use the CLA Licence to support your course. Further information and helpContact Martin Hall, Headington Library.
