A guide to photocopying, including information on copyright, digitisation and plagiarism.
There are self-service photocopying facilities at most Library Sites. A touchpad terminal is available on most copiers, through which students and staff can access credit in their printing account to pay for copying by swiping their University card.
The Xerox multi-function printers in Libraries allow both registered University users and non-University members to photocopy.
All users of the open-access computers have a printing/photocopying account. You must have enough credit in your account before you can print.
On the Xerox MFPs available at most Libraries, users can, after making sure they have their University card with them and enough credit in their printing/copying account, photocopy by doing the following:
Non-University members or guests wanting to photocopy using the Xerox MFPs may first go to the main Helpdesk in that Library to be issued with a copycard (for which there is a £1 charge) before following the same instructions as listed above.
Please remember: All copying is subject to relevant legislation and licensing.
Photocopied, photographic and digitised reproduction from published material is subject to copyright law. The University has signed up to a Higher Education licensing scheme which covers related activities, and also has a policy on plagiarism.
