Copyright for BGU Students

Copyright and SEN

Section 31 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 allows the University to reproduce, in any alternative format, all or part of any published work for the personal use of a student or member of staff whose disability means that they are unable to enjoy the work to the same degree as someone who does not have that disability. An accessible version must not already commercially available and the original work must be clearly and fully cited in the accessible copy. 

The Copyright Licensing Agency allows the same in relation to any books and journals covered by their licence.

Any copies made may not be further copied and must clearly state that they have been produced for a disabled person under Section 31 of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 or under the University's CLA Licence.
