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 NLA media access (NLA) offers two services designed to encourage the use of newspaper material in schools whilst fully respecting copyright law.
NLA Schools Licence: A new paid-for licence will be available from 1st April 2014 to any primary or secondary school in the UK which permits photocopying, printing, scanning and retyping extracts of newspapers and newspaper websites for education and teaching purposes.
NLA News Library: A free online database service allowing schools to access newspaper articles in PDF format and project them to screen or share links for use in study packs. The News Library covers over 150 national and regional newspaper titles dating from 2006 to the present day.
NLA has appointed Copyright Licensing Agency as exclusive agent for the issuing of NLA licences to UK educational establishments from 1st April 2014.
