Scan & Deliver is an electronic document delivery service for current staff and students (including ICE staff and students, and NHS partners). Users will need a Raven account to access this service. Eligible users can request an individual scanned copy of one chapter (or 5%) of a monograph or one article per issue of a journal from the University Library's modern collections, subject to relevant conservation approval and copyright permissions. A maximum of five requests per person per day can be made.
Scan requests are made for non-commercial research and private study as per s.29 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. Library staff are authorised to make scanned copies under s.42A and s.43. There are stipulations regarding the amount that can be scanned, the use of copyright declaration forms and conditions of supply.
Examples of appropriate amounts are:
Copyright Declaration forms
A copyright declaration must be acknowledged which states:
a) I have not previously been supplied a copy of the same material by you or any other librarian.
b) I will not use the copy except for non-commercial research or private study and will not supply a copy to any other person.
c) In the case of published works - to the best of my knowledge, no other person with whom I 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.
d) In the case of unpublished works - to the best of my knowledge, the work had not been published before the document was placed in your Library and the copyright owner has not prohibited copying of the work.
I understand that if the declaration is false in a material particular, the copy supplied to me by you will be an infringing copy and that I shall be liable for infringement of copyright as if I had made the copy myself.
Conditions of supply
The scans will be provided under these conditions of supply:
1. Not pass on, or upload, the electronic copy or make it available to any other person.
2. Not make further printed or electronic copies.
Further information on copyright is available on the Legal Services Office Copyright Compliance pages.
