The Library can only request a copy of one article in each issue of a journal or alternatively, we will try to borrow the whole issue for you or obtain additional articles on payment of a copyright fee - Borrower Services staff can give you more information.

If you need a photocopy for a commercial purpose, separate rules apply - A Guide to Commercial Copying gives further information on what constitutes a "commercial purpose".

Copies sent to Queen’s University staff and students are made under "Library Privilege", and may not be further copied, stored electronically, or used for commercial purposes. However, non QUB Library members may be required to pay an additional copyright fee to the publisher at a cost of £20 per article.
