What is FLEX

The Copyright Agency is making it even easier to use copyright-protected text and images.

We’ve developed 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 nearly 80% of Further Education Colleges and Universities use a similar product.

Developed in partnership with librarians

FLEX has now been successfully trialed and adopted in libraries at many private education providers in Australia and is included as part of the Copyright Agency Statutory Education Licence.
