Leganto guide: Chapter digitisation

Request a chapter to be digitised

  1. Once you have added a book to your list, navigate to that record and open it by clicking on the title. 
  2. Scroll down to add a Public note with chapter information, to tell students what to read and the library which section to digitise. Remember to save once added. 
  3. Once the digitisation is complete, a download button will appear in the citation. 

How much of a book can be digitised?

For books, the restriction is 10% of the pages or 1 chapter, whichever is greater. For articles in a periodical, 1 article can be used, or more if they relate to the same subject. For anthologies, 15 pages can be copied. Refer to the UNSW Library Copyright website for more information.

How long will my digitised chapter/extract/article be available?

Digitised chapters will only be available for the current session. If the same chapter is required again for the following session, please ensure that the item is saved in a Leganto list that is associated with the correct course (see points 3 and 4 of the Leganto guide).
