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.
We will try to make the scanned copy available as soon as possible. However, turnaround time will depend on the volume of requests received.
UCC Reading Lists for Canvas is a service provided by UCC Library, using Keylinks software, that will give students direct access to course readings via Canvas. Lists can contain all the resources that you expect your students to engage with during your course, including e-books, book chapters, e-journal articles, television programmes, web resources, and multimedia. Students can link directly to these resouces from the module area in Canvas. They can also link to the library catalogue giving real time information on print book availability.
