British Library INCD Licensing Framework - Update

The Publishers Licensing Society (PLS) in the UK has agreed an extension to the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) document delivery agreement with the British Library. This will mirror the framework agreement negotiated by the International Association of Scientific, Technical & Medical Publishers (STM) in consultation with the Publishers Association (PA) and will particularly assist smaller publishers who may not wish to set up an agreement with the British Library directly.

Publishers who currently mandate PLS will be contacted in the near future regarding this licence extension. If you are not a mandating PLS publisher and wish to know about the services they provide, please contact them at or +44 (0)20 7299 7730. Further details can be found at:
