External Visitors

There is a dedicated photocopier for use by external visitors in the main Library. You will need a code and a PIN to use this copier so please ask the staff at the Welcome Desk for details.

What can I copy and what about copyright?

There are strict limits to what you may legally copy. Copying is permitted for research or private study, and the maximum allowed is a single copy of up to one article from any one issue of a journal, or up to 10% or one chapter of a book.

Copying for commercial purposes require copyright stickers (£15 + VAT per article) which are available on request from the Welcome Desk, Level 2, University Library.
