Digitisation for Library Reading Lists

These pages aim to share how academic staff can request and add digitised reading resource access to their reading lists.

Digitisation for Library Reading Lists

University Library Services are able to offer a reading list digitised extract service under the terms of the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) Higher Education Licence. This guide highlights the benefits that including digitised extracts on Library Reading Lists can offer and explains how to make digitisation requests.

Key benefits of digitisation on library reading lists:

  • Enable quick and easy reading list access to print book extracts.
  • Make ebook chapters and articles available to students irrespective of cohort size.
  • Provide access to reading that the library does not already have within its collections.
  • Ensure copyright agreement and reporting requirement compliance.

Please use this guide to find out what can be digitised and how to add extracts to your reading lists.

If you'd like to find out more information about the digitisation service or have a query about a request you've submitted, please contact the Library Digitisation Team at
