The Copyright Agency is making it even easier to use copyright-protected text and images.
We’ve worked with international company Kortext to develop a new online product called Flex, which makes the task of preparing course reading material simpler and faster for librarians and educators. In the UK, librarians from more than 100 educational institutions use a similar product which has been widely praised.
Developed in partnership with librarians
Flex has been successfully trialled in libraries at a number of private colleges in Australia and is now an inclusion* as part of your annual Copyright Agency licence.
National Library Manager at the Australian College of Applied Pyschology, Ian Drummond, says:
“Flex provides a robust system for managing copyright compliance; compiling course material without reinventing the wheel; and has the added benefit of a central repository for storing and accessing content. Flex has made our jobs easier so we can spend more time on adding value.”
