How much of a book can I scan for Queen's Online?
Answered By: John Knowles Last Updated: Feb 02, 2015 Views: 22
The CLA (Copyright Licensing Authority) copying licence for Queen's allows a single chapter of a book, or 5% of its content (whichever is the greater) to be scanned for Queen's Online.
The copying licence also requires the University to supply details of all books scanned for modules to the CLA - and ensure that a standard cover sheet is attached to any book chapters scanned.
In order to facilitate this, the Library will scan book chapters on request and upload the chapter and cover sheet to the 'Readings Online' section of the relevant module in Queen's Online.
Contact your subject librarian if you would like a chapter to be scanned for Queen's Online.
Some titles from US publishers are excluded from the CLA licence along with publications from some counties (e.g. the Netherlands). The Library will inform you if this is the case.
