LISU (Library and Information and Statistics Unit), based in the Department of Information Science at Loughborough University, is working with Universities UK (UUK) and the Standing Conference of Principals (SCOP) to investigate the use of copyright material for learning support in Higher Education. The purpose of the study is to inform discussions between UUK/SCOP and rights owners on the renegotiation of the current HE photocopying licence (due to expire July 2006). The study aims to assess the level of copying of third party material and explore trends in use over time.
