Illustrations in books and journals
- Diagrams, illustrations, drawings, photographs and other graphic works, may be copied, either as a part of the extract limits permitted by the CLA Higher Education licence, or in isolation, provided that they are copied from the pages of a source which is licensed material under the CLA copyright scheme.
- Only copying from paper to paper is permitted for personal use although the CLA licence allows the library to scan images for designated course use through Solent Online Learning.
TIP: The CLA HE allows the library to scan images for educational use. Consider checking if there is a copyright cleared image available in an image bank or database or ask the library for information on digitisation:
