Sourcing materials

Finding material to reuse can be time consuming and dealing with copyright is often daunting.  There are four ways to minimise the risk of copyright infringement:

  1. use a hyperlink to the material instead of downloading and copying it;
  2. get permission from the copyright owner to reuse the material.  The Copyright Hub can help with this;
  3. reuse material under a commercial licence that the University subscribes to ( e.g. CLA HE Licence or ERA Plus Licence);
  4. find material with a re-use licence attached, such as a Creative Commons licence (or similar).

For help sourcing particular types of materials see:

For more information please contact the University Copyright Advisor at or ring 01509 222351.
