For 2020-21: The Copyright Licensing Agency has granted an extension to the Higher Education Licence (see below) in response to the Covid-19 pandemic: https://www.cla.co.uk/HE-licence-terms-amended-covid19
This extension currently covers 7 of the largest HE publishers: CUP, Elsevier, Pearson, Sage, Springer, Taylor & Francis and Wiley. If the Library is unable to purchase an e-book, two chapters or 20% of the print version can be digitized for reading lists. Digital copies made under this extension must be removed from reading lists by 31st July 2021.
The University of Hull holds the Copyright Licensing Agency's HE Licence, which enables University staff to make digital or print copies for students from most published books and journals, subject to the following limits per module:
*If the Library does not stock the publication, a copy can be made from a book or journal article legally sourced by the lecturer, until the Library is able to acquire the material for stock.
Lecturers and tutors who intend to provide students with digital copies (scans) of printed texts for course reading should use the Library's Digitization Service, to ensure compliance with licence terms. Requests for digitization should be submitted via ReadingLists@Hull.
Almost all of the Library's e-books and e-journals can be accessed off-campus, and an increasing number of authors take advantage of opportunities to publish their work on an open access platform. Instead of making copies, you can create an online reading list for students with direct links to the Library catalogue and subscribed or free resources:
If students report difficulties connecting to Library resources off-campus, please encourage them to ask for help: https://www.hull.ac.uk/library/help
