Extracts that are digitised by IRS staff are stored on the CLA Digital Content Store (DCS). The DCS generates links to digitised extracts which are placed on module reading lists to be accessed by students and staff on the module of study.
The publication must either be owned or subscribed to by the University and appear in 'Locate'/library catalogue or the extract can be requested 'copyright cleared' from the British Library.
We can digitise a chapter from any edition of a book that is not on the CLA excluded publications list, however, the license does not permit us to digitise more than 1 chapter or 10% across different editions of the same book.
Coventry University holds a CLA Higher Education Licence with the Copyright Licensing Agency Ltd. Subject to terms and conditions this allows the copying and re-use of extracts and still images to make them available to students. The CLA Licence also allows the scanning of material, including making scanned material available to students. There are restrictions on this and only library IRS staff are authorised to scan material for module reading lists. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to know more about this.
