Distance Learners: Photocopying Service

Photocopying Service

The Library offers a photocopy service for Distance Learning students covering print material which is held by the Library. For more information about accessing materials not held at QMU please see the sections Using other Libraries and Interlibrary Loan Service for Distance Learners.

We can provide you with one article from a print journal issue or one chapter of a print book provided that neither constitutes more than 5% of the whole item. We can also direct you to our online resources for electronic versions of material.

Each photocopy, journal article or book chapter, costs £3.00. This is to cover admin, photocopying and postal charges.

  1. Print out, and fill in, and sign the Photocopy Request form.
  2. Note that you need to fill out a form for each photocopy request.
  3. Scan and email the form to us at Please also include your address details in the email.
  4. The £3.00 charge per request will be added to your student account.
  5. Any charges against your account must be settled with the institution before your graduation

Your photocopies will then be posted out to you.
