Copyright poster

LACA and CILIP have produced a free poster that libraries are encouraged to download and display close to copying equipment and in other prominent locations.

The poster’s purpose is to raise awareness of copyright law, to provide some straightforward information and to signpost people to further information and advice. It is deliberately brief and uses simple terms so that it will be understood by a broad audience.

Welsh language versions of the poster are also available to download.

Copyright poster briefing document

LACA has produced a briefing document to accompany the poster. This briefing provides more detail about the copying that is now permissible under UK law. It is aimed predominately at library staff.

Further guidance

Further information about copyright reform, together with briefings and resources, can we found on LACA's website.

Attending CILIP's Special Interest Groups' events has allowed me to gain a sound knowledge of copyright and give me an edge in the job market
