Recently we told you about the help that was available for copyright queries both by asking us directly (http://kfh.libraryservices.nhs.uk/new-year-no-sweat/) and on the newly updated copyright guidance and FAQ pages (http://kfh.libraryservices.nhs.uk/copyright-no-more-cold-sweats/).
Since then there have been two important updates.
Firstly, the CLA have updated their website producing a new page dedicated to the CLA Licence Plus for the NHS, reflecting the recent addition of the Royal Society of Medicine as a supplier of Copyright Fee Paid articles and including an integrated Permissions Checker. The new page is available at https://www.cla.co.uk/nhs-england-licence. As before, the ‘Public Sector’ option should be chosen when checking permissions. The information available at http://www.libraryservices.nhs.uk/forlibrarystaff/information/nhs_copyright.html has been updated to reflect this, adding a new guide clarifying when to order Copyright Fee Paid articles.
Secondly, a new page has been added to the guidance specifically to address copyright in NHS-Higher Education crossover situations. This follows the webinars presented on this subject by the CLA at the end of last year. The new page can be found at http://www.libraryservices.nhs.uk/forlibrarystaff/information/copyright_NHS_HE.html.
