Staff must not upload copies of copyright material onto their Moodle pages themselves. This material can only be made available to students through the library's eReadings. The library will ensure that copyright limits are adhered to and all necessary information is recorded. Once the library has placed the article or book chapter on eReadings, staff can place the URL onto their subject page, which will provide students with direct access to the item.


If you wish to use a digital image without obtaining permission from the copyright owner (such as off the internet) on your Moodle subject pages, you may only copy and use it if you include the Part VB copyright warning notice on the same page. The size of the notice can be changed, but it must be clearly legible. Note that some images can be used freely without the need to rely on Part VB, such as images used under an open licence such as Creative Commons).

If you wish to scan a hard copy image, you first need to check if the image is published separately and available for purchase in digital form. If it is not, then you may scan it. You must then display the Part VB notice beside or immediately preceding the image. For more information about copying images see the images web page.
