Final Thoughts

  • If you are in doubt about an item’s copyright and reuse status, ask permission from the rights holder.
  • Don’t leave seeking permission until the last minute, as it can take weeks to arrange.
  • Keep copies of all correspondence for at least 5 years; you may need to refer to them again.
  • Reference and acknowledge everything, even if you have not had to ask permission. This is both courteous and good academic practice.
  • Ask for help if you need it
