Already reached digitisation limit for book/journal

The CLA licence allows us to digitise one chapter from a book and one article from a journal issue, or 5% from a book. You will receive one of the messages below if your request exceeds this limit (this also take into account previous requests from the same book for the same course).

For example:

 

Dear ______,

This email is about your digitisation request made for Sociology of Contemporary Europe (SG3055) on 23 Jan 2015:

Chapter/section:  Chapter 9
Book title: Social change in Western Europe
Authors/Editors: Crouch, Colin
ISBN(s): 9780198780687, 9780198742753, 0198780680, 0198742754

This request has been rejected. Please see digitisation staff for further details.

Note from Stephen Penton: A chapter from this book has already been digitised for this course.

If an ebook is available

If an e-book is available, generally we will buy this instead of making a digitisation (although this does depend on certain factors such as cost). We will need to consult with your Subject Librarian, who may talk to you before authorising the purchase.

You will receive a message similar to the one below.

Book or journal is not covered by the CLA licence

Our CLA licence allows us to scan extracts from many but not all books and journals. If the resource cannot be scanned, we can try to obtain permission direct from the publisher (for which there may be a fee), but if we are not able to then we will be unable to make a digitised scan of the reading available.

You will receive the message below.

 

Dear ______,

This email is about your digitisation request made for Media History and Politics (SG1005) on 6 Nov 2014:

Article/section:  Public policy and independent television production in the UK
By: G. Doyle, R. Paterson; Paterson, G. Doyle, R.
From: Journal of media business studies v. 5 (3)
ISSN(s): 1652-2354

Your digitisation request for the item below has been rejected because the item was unavailable under the terms of the CLA site licence. The library attempted to acquire copying rights elsewhere, but unfortunately on this occasion was unable to do so.

Note from Stephen Penton: We are unable to obtain permission from the publisher to make a digitised scan of this reading available from Reading Lists Online.
