Copyright restrictions mean that you cannot photocopy or scan a whole book.
However, copying limited amounts of any published text for the purposes of non-commercial research or private study is permitted under UK copyright law. This must however be copying for personal use.
The Higher Education Copying Licence held by Queen's sets clear limits on copying: you can reproduce book extracts of up to one chapter, or 10% of the whole book (whichever is the greater).
QUB staff members who co-ordinate modules can use the Library's Recommended Readings service to request scanning of articles and book chapters for teaching purposes. For more information about this service, please click the link below.
