Digitisation requests

The Library has an e-preferred access policy. This means that we will purchase online access or digitise content where it is possible to do so. If you have added a print book to your list, you can help us by letting us know if there are specific pages you would like digitised. You can let us know by emailing or adding a Note for Library.

Talis and copyright

The Talis reading list system helps the University ensure copyright compliance. Talis keeps track of the copied material across the University by storing all the bookmarked material and performing copyright compliance checks against other files in the system. If Talis detects that copyright limits have been compromised, the Library is notified so that adjustments can be made and compliance can be assured.

The Library reports to the Copyright Agency (CAL) on the use of copyright materials, using the information stored in Talis to create reports including all item details, course codes, students numbers and format of materials. The use of Talis removes the copyright risk of loading files directly into Blackboard. Unpublished resources such as lecture notes, slides and other ancillary teaching and learning materials are not included in Talis reading lists and are stored directly in Blackboard.

When the Library provides access to digitised material within Talis, a copyright notice must be included.
