Copyright support

Copyright can be confusing and difficult, so the University Library has developed a microsite containing information and guidance to help you to avoid infringing other people's copyright and to make the most of your own.

 These web pages contain information on a wide variety of copyright-related topics, including:
  • the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act (CDPA) 1988;
  • the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) Higher Education Licence and other licences;
  • photocopying;
  • scanning;
  • Learn and lecture capture;
  • how to find re-usable online resources, such as images and videos;
  • publishing agreements and the Institutional Repository;
  • doctoral theses;
  • Loughborough University policies.
