Irish Copyright Law allows users to copy material under 'fair use.' There are certain restrictions:
UCC Library does not hold copyright for any thesis. Therefore theses cannot be copied by any means. The only way to copy a thesis is with written permission from the author. Special Collections will only accept written permission from the author stating that the requestor is able to copy a thesis. The written permission must also state what is the permitted method for copying.
Update: Please note from 20 July 2020 the book scanner is not available.
All users: There is no charge to use the book scanner.
UCC Staff: Should staff require Special Collections staff to scan material then charges will apply for the service. This administrative fee is to be based on units of time. One unit = up to 15 minutes. As it is a service VAT will be also added.
