Licensing for overseas-campus based students[TG2/Licensing]

This session is a follow-up to an event cpd25 held in February 2016 on the Copyright Licensing Agency’s (CLA) pilot offering.  With effect from 2019, overseas campus-based students (“OCB’s”) have become an optional add-on to the main CLA HE Licence.  We will be exploring how OCBs fall within the overall licensing framework and touching on the wider context, including things to look out for when planning or resourcing courses for overseas campuses or collaborative partners.  The session will also offer insights into working with colleagues across institutions to achieve the best results in the provision of library and learning resources for these students.
