Newspapers are an invaluable source of inspiration for students - over 50% of teachers use newspaper content on a weekly basis.
On behalf of publishers around the UK, the Newspaper Licensing Agency (NLA) offers two services designed to encourage the use of newspaper material in schools whilst fully respecting copyright law.
Schools Licence: A FREE Licence available for any school in the UK which permits photocopying, printing and ad-hoc scanning of newspapers for reaching purposes.
News Library: A FREE online service allowing schools to access newspaper articles in PDF format and project them to screen, share links or include articles in study packs.
The News Library service covers over 140 national and regional newspaper titles from 2006 to the present day. For older material, many newspapers also offer their own individual archive services.
