Abstract

Reports on a survey of copyright specialists in UK educational and cultural institutions carried out in March 2017. It presents further evidence to build on earlier studies (Morrison and Secker, 2015; Todorova et al, 2017) which suggested that UK libraries and cultural institutions are more likely to have a copyright specialist in place and to offer formal training and support for both staff and students than institutions in other countries. Even when a copyright specialist is not in post, there are often several members of staff likely to have responsibility for copyright. The findings should be of interest to librarians and managers of information services in the UK, as well as those developing specialist copyright support roles in other countries around the world.
