Q. What print material can be requested to be made available to students on Canvas?


To be copyright compliant you can request the following from UCC Library's print collections:

  • one chapter of a book
  • one article from a journal issue/magazine
  • one scene from a play
  • one paper from a set of conference proceedings
  • one report of a single case from a volume of judicial proceedings
  • one short story, poem or play (up to 10 pages) of an anthology
  • OR 10% of the total publication, whichever is the greater

Normally you can only request one chapter or 10% of a book, whichever is the greater, or one article from a journal. However, due to Covid 19  some publishers have increased the extent limit for copying from print books to 20% or 2 chapters until July  2021.  Please click here for list of participating publishers.
