Visual impairment and copyright

The CLA Higher Education Photocopying Licence gives permission to make an enlarged or reduced sized copy of a complete document, in any format, for partially sighted students.

Copying is subject to certain conditions:

  • Marjon must already own a copy of the item for use by other staff and students
  • A copy must not be made if there is a commercially available large-print version of the work
  • The number of copies made must match the number of partially-sighted users of the work
  • Copies must not be edited or bound with other material and must not be published or sold
