A year ago this month, the NHS Copyright First Responders service was launched to help NHS Library staff navigate their way through copyright issues and help in the provision of document supply. In that time we have continued to update the guidance available at http://www.libraryservices.nhs.uk/forlibrarystaff/information/nhs_copyright.html while responding to specific queries received through the firstname.lastname@example.org email.
The queries we receive have informed further enhancements we will be making to the guidance over the coming months and the first of these is available now. NHS Copy Aid is a new tool designed by Ian Rennie, one of the Copyright First Responders, which will assist in supplying articles in order to meet your users’ needs and meet legal and licencing requirements. Answering a few simple questions will allow you to determine the appropriate licence based on the user, their needs and the source of the document.
So please give NHS Copy Aid a try at http://www.libraryservices.nhs.uk/forlibrarystaff/information/nhs_copyright.html and we welcome any feedback along with you copyright queries to email@example.com.
On behalf of the NHS Copyright First Responders
