How to contact Copyright Services

Copyright Services

Copyright Services provides current University staff and students with information, resources, practical assistance and training about using copyright material for education and research.

We are not able to assist with external queries about copyright. The following organisations provide general information about copyright on their websites:

How to contact us?
  • University staff and students with a copyright query, or wanting to arrange a copyright information session, should initially contact Copyright Services by emailing us at or by completing the online query form.

  • We will be running copyright information and awareness sessions for University staff and higher degree by research students throughout the year. This section will be updated with session details once they are organised.

    Interested in a customised session?

    If you would like Copyright Services to run a session dealing with copyright issues tailored to the needs of your faculty, school or department, please contact us at or complete the online query form so we can discuss your requirements, staff availability and scheduling. We can present at a stand-alone copyright session or as part of a general training day or regular staff meeting.

    We will need plenty of time to prepare for customised sessions so it would be helpful if the sessions could be arranged well in advance.
