Photocopying, scanning and printing

 

SIA students have access to photocopying and scanning facilities within the library. Students cannot print in the library, but there are full printing facilities in the IT room in the basement of Building 30.

 

Very important: to comply with UK copyright law, only 10% or 1 chapter or a book, or 10% or 1 article from a journal may be copied or scanned. Only bibliographies can be copied or scanned from dissertations.

 

SIA student cards are also photocopying, scanning and printing cards. When you receive your student card, it will be charged with £3 worth of credit, which you can use to photocopy and print. Scanning is free on any of the SIA machines.

To top up your printing and photocopying credit, you can add money via a debit or credit card via PaperCut.
