Let us know the content you need

If there are types of content that you are unable to provide lawful access to for teaching and learning, please provide us with the details by completing our short form. We will use the information in our discussions with content providers to illustrate the issues and to advocate for improvements.

With input from our members, a set of recommendations and requirements for publishers, content providers and system vendors has been produced in the areas of access and discovery to make the process as simple as possible for librarians, including recommendations for ensuring easy exit from temporary arrangements.
