Can I copy or request the digitisation of more than one chapter from the same book where there are different editions available?

Technically no. We would always use the most recent edition available. We can only digitise from an older edition if there is a valid pedagogic reason to do so (for example a unique chapter subsequently omitted). It is not possible to copy 2 chapters from two editions of the same book.

Similarly it is not possible to digitise one chapter from one edition for week 1 and another chapter from a different edition for week 2 for example? The duration of the course is the key and this could be viewed as possible textbook substitution.

It is possible to digitise 2 chapters from the same edition where the publisher permits this. There is normally an additional charge incurred which is passed on to the department.
