How much can I photocopy, scan and print?


It is important that you keep within UK copyright law when photocopying, scanning and printing.


According to UK copyright law, you can photocopy, scan or print:


  • 1 chapter or 10% of a book
  • 1 article or 10% of a journal
  • 10% of pages in an exhibition or sales catalogue


It is also important that you adhere to copyright law when you use images in your assignments or dissertation.


You must give the full web address for the image, the owner or photographer, the title of the database on which it is stored and the date on which it was accessed.


Alumni and visitors to SIA do not have access to printing or photocopying facilities.


If you are ever unclear on copyright limitations, please ask one of the library staff.
