How do I find Course Collection resources?

Use :

  •  has separate Course Collection search options. This is the most efficient way of searching for course material. It enables you to search for items for a specific course or lecturer, using either the course code/name, or the lecturer's name
  • all course collection items can also be found using the standard WebCat catalogue search

To view all items for a specific unit / course you should:

  • login to Library Search with your  User Name & Password
  • Select Course Collections from the first drop down menu
  • You can then select Course Name, Course Code or Course Lecturer e.g. HIST1080

This will produce a list of all the items (physical and online stock) held for that course. 

Stock available online will have [electronic resource] after the title. Select the item you wish to access. Click on the text 'online link to document' to view the document in full.


Is my request eligible for scanning/copying?

For any one course, printed books, journals and magazines can be scanned/copied providing they comply with the terms and conditions of the CLA HE Licence . The key points of which are as follows:


  • Up to 10% or one complete chapter of a book
  • Up to 10% or one single article from a journal or periodical issue
  • All articles or extracts included in our collections must show full source details and we are  therefore only able to accept clearly referenced material
  • Source MUST be published in the UK, or from one of the mandated international territories
  • Source material: must be held in library stock or Copyright Cleared requested via ILL service
  • Source must be scanned from the latest edition of the book

The CLA HE Licence

The current accord says it is a breach of the Licence if items are placed in a course collection with the intention that students will systematically copy them.

The Accord also says it is permissible to place items in the collection if the intention is to facilitate wider access by students within a restricted time-scale.  This is our intention in providing a course collection.

As part of our commitment to this, we expect all University staff and students using the Library course collections to follow these points as set out in the  Accord, i.e. staff and students have not, under any circumstances been instructed to copy items held in our course collections.

That is not to say copying is not allowed.  Fair dealing allows individuals to copy for the purposes of research or private study.
