The CLA HE Trial Scanning Licence : how we’re using it

By Jenny Delasalle


The Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) Higher Education (HE) Trial Scanning\ud Licence has been implemented to varying degrees across UK HE institutions. The\ud UK HE community has sought to share expertise in the technical, practical and\ud compliance issues associated with the licence since its introduction. The\ud University of Warwick Research and Innovation Unit (RIU) conducted a survey\ud of scanning practice which revealed different approaches and levels of scanning in\ud practice. This, taken with the CLA’s own data about how the licence has been\ud used, presents a picture of how UK HE Institutions are providing electronic\ud extracts to their students. Issues such as who is using the licence, how much they\ud are scanning, what the nature of that scanned content is and how they are creating\ud scanned extracts, reveal much that can help those considering whether and how to\ud use the CLA HE Trial Scanning Licence
