Both Boole and Brookfield BHSL Libraries have re-opened with the safety of Library users and staff as our chief guiding principle.
Please see our policies and important changes regarding re-opening here
You can request scans of book chapters and journal articles located in UCC Library’s general print collections. You can also request scans from some collections located in Special Collections.
Please note: Normally you can only request whichever is the greater of one chapter or 10% of a book or one article from a journal. However, due to Covid 19 some publishers have increased the extent limit for copying from print books to 20% or 2 chapters until July 2021. Please click here for list of participating publishers.
Apart from requests for scans from books by publishers who have increased the amount that can be scanned to 20% or 2 chapters you can request up to the following amount for each module:
When you want to place a scanned extract from a book or a print journal on Canvas, for use by students studying a particular module, just complete the form below and submit it to the library. (Please note you must have registered your class details first) Details will be checked against the DCS for copyright compliance. We will then scan the item and upload it to the DCS. This will generate a link which we will send to you to place on Canvas. The link can only be used for the course for which it was requested. If you want to use the same article for another course just let us know. The university must own a copy of anything to be scanned. If we don't currently own a copy we may buy a copy or buy a copyright fee paid scan of the article from the British Library.
Please note , you must login with your UCC Credentials
We will try to make the scanned copy available as soon as possible. However, turnaround time will depend on the volume of requests received.
