It enables universities to digitise some materials without applying individually to the copyright holder. The licence allows the posting of digitised material, which has been copyright cleared and paid for, on a VLE, such as StudyZone, or a secure intranet for the use of students on specific courses.
The Licence covers digitisation of most printed material that is published in the UK and the USA and where the University owns an original copy. Excluded works and excluded material cannot be digitised under this licence. Copying and digitising of excluded material may be covered by other licences and agreements.
The Licence applies to most material published in the UK and USA only. The place of publication is usually on the title page, and/or the page after the title page of a book or the cover of a journal. In the case of multinational publishers or items which have more than one place of publication, the main place of business of the publisher should be used. Categories of Excluded Material which may not be copied under the Licence are works that consist of the following:
printed music (including the words);
one chapter or 5% of a book, report or pamphlet;
The CLA Licence permits the photocopying and/or scanning of pages in printed books or journals of pages that consist wholly of text, pages that consist wholly of images (e.g. illustrations, photographs, and other works produced by visual creators) and of pages consisting of a combination of text and images.
The licence also permits a digital copy to be prepared of a whole page visual image
Digital material may be made available to students and staff on a specific course using a secure network (StudyZone, (StudyZone) or a password protected page) or may be distributed on disk or CD ROM to students on a specific course. Digital copies may also be displayed using standard presentation software (such as PowerPoint) to be viewed by staff and students on a course of study for the purpose of illustrating a lecture or tutorial.
For advice on using StudyZone, contact e learning Services
Once digitised, no more than one copy per student on the course may be printed.
Electronic copies downloaded from course collections cannot be transmitted by email
The same extract of a book or journal can be made simultaneously available to students on more than one course of study and a digital copy of a different part of the same book or journal can be made available to students on another course of study.
Material is digitised for specific StudyZone modules only and not for open access web sites such as department web pages or library catalogues. If you need to use the same digitised material in more than one StudyZone module, please submit a separate request for each module concerned.
At the end of the course, access to the digital material must be removed by the eLearning team.
The material may be used for other courses or for the same course when it runs again.
