Survey of Digitisation of Core Readings in UK Higher Education

The final report of a survey carried out independently by Jane Secker (LSE) and June Hedges (UCL) in March/April 2009 is now available. The survey looked primarily at current activities relating to the scanning of core readings to support taught courses, but also touched on wider issues such as copyright in HE institutions, e-learning support and collection development.

Carried out following the introduction of the Copyright Licensing Agency's new Comprehensive Licence (which allows copying from digital originals) in August 2008, the survey posed questions about the impact of this and of the previous Trial Scanning Licence on services provided by libraries across the sector.

The report is available at the project website:
