Reproductions guide

Introduction 

  • You can order Reproductions of our material through our Document Supply Service 
  • You can order Photocopies (paper or digital) or digital Images 
  • Reproductions are supplied in accordance with UK copyright law — see the Copyright section of the guide for further details 

 

Placing an order 

Complete the online order form available on our website.

 

Format 

  • Reproductions can be supplied as Photocopies (paper or digital) or as digital Images 
  • Photocopies are sufficient if you just need straightforward copies, although they are not suitable for publication 
  • Images are better if you need each page or part of a page supplied in a separate file, if you need to be able to make changes to the Reproductions later, or if you need to publish the material.

 

Photocopies 

  • If you would like a Photocopy supplied on paper, please tell us you want the material copied in Black and White or Colour 
  • If you would like a Photocopy supplied as a PDF file, just tick the PDF box; the material will be scanned at 200dpi in the original colour and size 

 

Images 

  • If you would like Image files, tell us the File Type and Resolution you prefer, and whether the Images should be in Black and White or Colour

 

File Type 

  • JPEG files are smaller, which makes them easier to store and transmit. 
  • TIFF files are uncompressed, which makes them easier to edit later 

 

Resolution 

  • The higher the resolution, the better the quality 
  • 72dpi is sufficient if the image is only to be displayed on a screen. 
  • 200dpi is needed if the image is to be printed out — although 300dpi may be required if the image is particularly detailed 
  • 300dpi is usually needed if the image is to be published commercially; some publishers require images to be at 600dpi 

 

Delivery 

  • Digital Reproductions (PDF Photocopies and JPEG/TIFF Images) are normally delivered via email — as a download link 
  • They can also be saved to a CD 
  • Paper Photocopies (and CDs) can be collected from the Library, or delivered by post (first class Royal Mail or Airmail) or Parcel Force 

 

Reproduction Details

  • Use this section to tell us what needs to be Reproduced 
  • If you know the page numbers, please indicate them 
  • If you are ordering Images and need only part of a page to be reproduced, then please indicate the part; otherwise the entire page will be scanned 

 

Processing your order 

  • Your order will be passed to our specialist staff, who will check that your Reproduction can be supplied without infringing copyright or causing damage to the material 

 

Payment 

  • We will contact you to confirm your order within a day or two 
  • We will also confirm the total amount payable: you can then pay with a credit or debit card via the University of London Online Shop 
  • If the item is subject to copyright, we will also send you a pre-completed copyright declaration that you should sign by hand and return to us by post, fax or email 

 

Delivery Time 

  • Once we have received payment — and copyright declaration if required — your order will be completed within a day or two, although large orders may take a few days longer 
  • We will notify you via email when your order is complete 

 

Copyright 

  • Many published works in the Library — and most unpublished works — will be subject to copyright 
  • If a work is in copyright, there are restrictions in terms of what can be copied and for what purpose 
  • General guidance is given below, although our specialist staff will assess your order in respect of whether it complies with copyright law 

 

Published works 

  • If the individual author is known, copyright expires 70 years after the author’s death 
  • If the individual author is unknown, copyright expires 70 years after publication 
  • Works published in the last 25 years are always in copyright (or ‘Publication Right’) 
  • Images are counted as independent artistic ‘works’ 
  • Moreover, where images appear to be photographs of other artistic works, there will be an additional copyright in the photograph 

 

Unless a published work is out of copyright 

  • We cannot copy more than one article from the same journal issue, or more than 5% or one chapter from a published edition such as a book 
  • Reproductions may only be supplied for non-commercial research or private study 
  • Images can only be copied as part of another work — such as a book chapter or journal article — and not independently 

 

Unpublished works 

Most unpublished works held in the Library will be in copyright until 2039 

Unless an unpublished work is out of copyright 

  • Reproductions may only be supplied for non-commercial research or private study 
  • Images (including photographs and artworks) can only be copied as part of another work, not independently 

 

Use of reproductions 

  • The Library owns its own copyright in every Reproduction supplied — this is separate from any copyrights that may subsist in the original material 
  • If you wish to publicly disseminate a Reproduction — for example, in a publication, website, exhibition or broadcast — you must first apply for a Licence from the Library 
  • You can apply for a Licence using the online order form — either when you order the Reproduction, or after the Reproduction has been supplied 
  • If the original material is not out of copyright, you will also need the permission of the relevant copyright owner(s) — the Library cannot grant permission on behalf of a third party
