Copyright support

Copyright can be confusing and difficult, so the University Library has developed a website 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 answers to frequently asked questions from students, staff and doctoral researchers 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 Research Repository;
  • doctoral theses;
  • Loughborough University policies
  • Creative Commons and similar licences
