How do I ask for an article or book chapter to be added to Queen's Online?

Contact your subject librarian if you would like a book chapter or article to be scanned for Queen's Online. The CLA (Copyright Licensing Authority) copying licence held by Queen's allows single book chapters and articles to be scanned from print for Queen's Online.

Items scanned for modules are uploaded to the 'Readings Online' section of the relevant module in Queen's Online and the Library will add the cover note required under the licence. Details of books scanned will also be forwarded to the CLA, as also required by the CLA licence. 

Some books 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.

If the article you wish to add to Queen's Online is not available from Library subscriptions, the Library can request a 'copyright cleared' copy from the British Library on your behalf. This copy can then be added to Queen's Online.
