The CLA Licence permits scanning of extracts from printed books, journals and magazines which are owned by the University (not personal copies) and which are not in their lists of excluded categories or works excluded from scanning.

Generally, the limits on the amount of any individual work that may be photocopied or scanned under the terms of the CLA Licence are the same as those that apply to "fair dealing".

If the work you want to copy is excluded from the Licence you must seek permission from the copyright holder - usually the author or publisher.

Details of scanning undertaken by the University under the CLA Comprehensive Licence must be recorded and submitted annually to the CLA via the CLA Licence Co-ordinator (Head of Customer Services, Newcastle University Library).

There's a link to our Copyright library guide below for more information on how long copyright lasts and what can legally be copied, including what is understood as "fair dealing".
