Welcome to CLA’s brand new website and our new series of blogs for Higher Education, we’ve been working on this for a while so we hope you like it. Our first blog will talk you through our new website, the new features you’ll find and the new layout. Going forward, we will be publishing two blogs a month – one written by us, and one written by you. We’re looking for guest writers from the world of Higher Education to write about the important issues that you feel are most pressing and relevant. If you would be interested in getting involved and writing a blog for CLA, then get in touch.
No doubt you will have noticed that our branding has been completely overhauled. Gone are the days of red! While we continue protecting creativity with our work remunerating authors, publishers and visual artists; we believe that our main objective is to help simplify copyright for you, our customers, and help you to get access to the content you need. That’s why our new strap line is ‘Copyright. Made Simple’.
Now with every change there are some sad losses, and today is no different - as we will be saying goodbye to he.cla.co.uk. However, everything from the microsite, including all of your Licence documents and information about our services has been transferred over to the new website.
You’ll also be able to login to ‘My CLA’ where you can see just the content relevant to your sector and you’ll also see the important licence and service information for your institution as well.
So from now on our only website is www.cla.co.uk and anyone logging in from a micro site will be redirected here.
Check Permissions has also had some improvements made; the faceted search option is now searchable when there are a multitude of options, for example, previously you might have searched for a title, but the faceted search bar states that there are 1,000 potential publishers to look through making it difficult to find the one you’re looking for. Now, you can just type in the name of your publisher and not have to trawl through a list.
If you have any questions about the new brand or the website itself, do be sure to get in touch; simply email firstname.lastname@example.org.
