Q. Are there copyright restrictions on the Scan and Deliver service?

Answer

All scans will be compliant with copyright law. This means that whichever is the greater of one chapter or 10% of a book or one article from a journal issue can be provided.  When requesting a scan the requester agrees that by submitting a request they are also agreeing to the conditions in the copyright declaration below:  

  • That the material is required for the purpose of research for a non-commercial purpose or for private study 

  • That they have not previously been supplied with a copy of the same material by UCC Library or any other library 

  • That they will not use the copy except for research for a non-commercial purpose or private study and will not supply a copy of it, by any means to another person 

  • That to the best of their knowledge no one with whom they work or study has made or intends to make, at or about the same time as this request, a request for substantially the same material for substantially the same purpose 

  • That only a single paper copy will be retained and the electronic copy will be destroyed if the item is printed 

  • That if the declaration is false in a material particular the copy supplied will be an infringing copy and the requester will be liable for the infringement as if they made it themselves.​
