Newspaper Licensing Agency (NLA) licence

The University has a licence with the Newspaper Licensing Agency (NLA) which allows members of the university:

  • To make photocopies, both ad hoc and systematically as part of a press cuttings distribution service, of cuttings taken from NLA newspapers. You should not exceed 250 copies of one cutting without seeking further permission.
  • To fax cuttings taken from NLA newspapers.
  • To include photocopies of cuttings for inclusion in study packs ( up to a maximum of 250 copies without seeking further permission).
  • To project cuttings taken from those newspapers by illumination on to a screen.
  • To copy photographs, illustrations or advertisements in addition to text.
  • Does not permit the making of scanned or digital copies of newspaper articles.

Newspaper titles covered by the licence

The NLA website provides a full list of newspapers, national and regional, covered by the licence. If the paper you require is not listed, you should contact the publishers direct for permission to copy.

Please note: The Times Educational Supplement and the Times Higher Educational Supplement are NOT covered by this licence nor are any foreign language and therefore can not be copied.

All copies to be annotated with the following text:

"NLA Licensed Copy. No further copies may be made except under licence".

TIP: you can make multiple PRINT copies of certain papers under the NLA licence. If you want a digital version, you may be able to link to a copy of the article in one of the library’s many newspaper eresources
