There are two options for requesting a digitised item, these are explained below. However you make the request you must first check that the item is not available electronically by searching Library Search. If we do not have an electronic version then you can continue to make a digitisation request.

Digitising items for a reading list:

Usually the item is part of a reading list for a module. In this case you can request for items to be digitised via the reading list system. When items have been digitised they will become available on the BlackBoard module site and a link will appear in the reading list.

Digitising items not for a reading list:

If you wish to provide access to materials for students on a module away from their formal reading list then you can complete an online form. This will send your request through to the Library who will process your request and add the digitised item to your relevant Blackboard module. Please ensure you give the correct module & Blackboard Code details on the form to ensure your content appears in the correct location for students to view.

For more help and support with digitisation please contact your Academic Support Librarian.
