Scanning requests just got easier

In cognisance of feedback from academic staff and in support of the university's aim to rationalise administrative procedures, we are simplifying scanning requests.

Academic staff will no longer have to complete the online scanning request form to request a chapter or article to be uploaded to their modules in WebCT. Simply email the following details to CLAScanning@qmu.ac.uk and the LRC Scanning Services team will do the rest:

1. Module code
2. Number of students
3. Module start date and end date
4. Title of book or journal
5. Title of chapter or article

We are also happy to work with bibliographic lists.

If you have requested the material before in a previous semester or academic year, simply email us to let us know if you wish to make the material available again and we will upload the digital copy to the current version of the module on WebCT.

Under the terms of the CLA Scanning Licence, the preparation and distribution of digitised copies is restricted to the LRC Scanning Services. Please do not make and upload digital copies (aka PDFs) of articles or book chapters/extracts yourself as this would be in contravention of our Photocopying and Scanning Higher Education licence.

The LRC Scanning Services can also provide you with permanent links to electronic resources which you can upload as web links to your modules.

We're ready and waiting for scanning requests for Semester 2 so get emailing!
