The CLA Higher Education Licence provides a wide range of permissions to help support teaching and learning allowing QMU to make full use of our print and electronic collections. The CLA HE Licence does this by allowing QMU to:
Search by title

The proportion of a work that may be photocopied and/or scanned consists of:
or 10% of any of the above, whichever is the greater.
Further restrictions apply:
The preparation and distribution of Digital Copies must be authorised by a ‘Designated Person’, in QMU’s case this is the Library Services Scanning Service.
Members of staff not specifically appointed as a Designated Person and students are not permitted to scan under this licence. If they should do so – and do not seek the written permission of the rights owner – they may be putting themselves and QMU at risk of a claim for infringement of copyright law.
Under the terms and conditions of the CLA Higher Education Licence, the University has permission to make digital copies.
Digital copies are :
Hub 'course users' are entitled to download and print these digital copies that are accessed via their Hub modules.
The following limits also apply:
The licence also stipulates that the preparation and distribution of Digital Copies can only be carried out by the Library Services Scanning Service. To uphold this stipulation and to ensure that there are no complications relating to the Data Reporting and Auditing procedures, academic staff are not permitted to make and upload digital copies of copyrighted material to their module areas on the Hub.
Academic staff need only email the following details to CLAScanning@qmu.ac.uk and the Library Services Scanning Service will do the rest.
Alternatively, simply email a bibliographic list to CLAScanning@qmu.ac.uk , and the Library Services Scanning Service will check the suitability of the material for scanning.
If the material has been requested for a module in a previous semester or academic year, simply email the Library Services Scanning Service to request that the material be uploaded for the current semester or academic year.
Please be aware that the following type of items cannot be stored on Hub:
There is no restriction for the uploading of Weblinks to Hub. Using Weblinks is the easy way to provide access to material available on the internet and it bypasses any copyright restrictions placed on the material.
The Library Services Scanning Service is happy to help academic staff find and upload Weblinks to such material on to their module sites on Hub.
The Copyright Licensing Agency is able to carry out a copyright audit of all material included in Hub at any time and with only four weeks warning. QMU may face heavy financial penalties or have our licence revoked if we are found to be in breach of our licence.
