To support you in your teaching Library & Learning Services offer a digitisation service to all Ipswich Campus teaching staff. These are scanned copies of book chapters/section or journal articles.
To avoid copyright infringement all digitised sections must be requested via Library & Learning Services, please do not scan and upload sections yourself.
For each Brightspace module you may use the following amount from each specific title (providing we hold a copy, and it is covered for scanning under our CLA licence):
After your request is received we do the following:
We aim to complete these tasks in a timely manner. However, during peak times we will require sufficient advance notice to ensure readings are prepared for the required period.
We periodically check Brightspace modules to ensure scanned sections are in line with copyright requirements (i.e. have been requested via the library and have the required permissions etc.)
If you have previously used materials in a module and wish to use them again (during the new academic year) please let us know. Even materials we have previously checked and approved require the same checks each year, and where module codes/titles change we will need to update this information.
We aim to make contact during the summer months to determine which materials will be re-used so we can ensure they are checked and made available ahead of the new academic year
Important: Please ensure access is withdrawn from materials when the module has finished (a copyright requirement)
If a resource is available electronically it should be linked to rather than adding the content directly to the Brightspace module. This way you are less likely to infringe on copyright or individual license agreements. This will also ensure you are leading your students to the most current version of a resource and on a legitimate platform.
In most cases you can simply copy the link from the browser address bar, but some e-book and journal platforms will have other options for making links to a resource. Some possible wording/options to look out for are:
Generally speaking, selecting any of these will open a pop up box and provide you with the option to copy a link, which you can the share with your students.
If you require assistance creating or sharing links, please contact email@example.com
