We can scan and email you one chapter, or 10%, from a key text for you to host on Moodle for the benefit of all your students.  This can be an extract from a print book, journal or magazine owned by WUC, or a digital-to-digital copy of subscribed electronic content, e.g. a chapter from an e-book.

Copyright - keeping legal on Moodle

We are bound by the CLA Higher Education Licence.  Every June we report to the CLA the new scans that have been added to Moodle in the previous 12 months.

It is important to note that scanned content must be owned or subscribed to by the library.  You are not permitted to upload content to Moodle that you have access to through another institution or is part of your private collection.

If you want to provide access to a journal article from our collection, simply provide a link on Moodle for students to access themselves.  Do not download and then upload this content.

What you need to do

Use the form at the bottom of the screen to request an item for scanning.  We will make sure that any scans supplied conform with the HE Copyright Licence and instruct you on how they can be used.

If you add digitised content to Moodle yourself, you must:

  • Ensure that the scan includes a copyright notice as a cover sheet

  • Log the scan on the reporting log

Links to these can be found on the copyright page on Moodle.

If you have any doubts about what is, and isn't permissible, please email the library, and we will do our best to advise.
