Digital Extracts Service
The Digital Extracts Service is currently limited to providing material already in our database. Submit your request as usual using the Digitisation Request Form below. Please note you may be advised that the material is currently not available and be asked to resubmit your request once a normal level of service is resumed.
Guidelines for staff requesting materials
The Digital Extracts Service (DES) offers staff the opportunity to request digitisation of teaching materials for Reading Lists and Moodle. Digitised journal articles and book chapters will be available in an electronic format via Leganto and Moodle to named groups of students for set periods.
For more information about the digitisation scheme please see our Copyright Guidance LibGuide page on Digital copying for Moodle.
Submit your request
Digitisation Request Form
Please submit a separate form for each digitisation request.
When we receive your request, Library staff will find the most cost-effective way of providing the extract. If there are other ways of accessing the information, your Subject Librarian will discuss these with you before proceeding.
In some cases, copyright clearance has to be obtained directly from the publisher(s) before digitisation can proceed. Times to obtain clearance vary and may take up to six weeks, occasionally longer. Therefore it is crucial that requests are made well in advance of the actual requirement.
The CLA has worked with representatives of publishers and Universities UK, GuildHE and individual HEIs to publish a Good Practice Guide on creating coursepacks.
