The UK’s copyright legislation has been referred to as the longest, most confusing and hardest to navigate in the world.

This new handbook brings clarity to what would otherwise be a complex topic. The author provides sensible and realistic guidance for all library and information practitioners. Topics covered include:

  • the copyright exceptions or permitted acts most relevant to library and information professionals
  • lending of print and electronic copyright materials
  • the range of licensing solutions available to ensure that the use of copyright works is done in compliance with the law
  • the options available for making copies of orphan works (such as where this is done as part of digitization projects)
  • an exploration of how information professionals working in the corporate sector can copy material legitimately, and highlights where this differs from practitioners working in not for profit publicly accessible libraries
