Q. What is the Digital Content Store (DCS)?
UCC Library is trialing a service from the Digital Content Store (DCS) whereby academic staff can request copyright compliant scans of chapters of books and journal articles which can be uploaded to the DCS and accessed by students from a link in Canvas.
The Digital Content Store (DCS) is a repository of book and journal extracts and a workflow tool managed by the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA). It holds the CLA compliant scans of book and journal extracts and provides a stable link allowing students to access it via an institution’s VLE. The DCS checks that the extract can be used, is copyright compliant and does not exceed permitted scanning limits.
