Get more from your licence with Licence Plus!

Licence Plus is a service that combines the copying and reuse rights included in your CLA licence, with on-demand fee-paid articles through the British Library's document supply service to create a joint 'rights plus content' service – Licence Plus.

Licence Plus is available to corporate customers who agree to a multi-year licence while a version is also available to NHS and other public sector customers. 

When you move to this new service you will have access to a pre-agreed amount of unencrypted copyright-fee-paid articles every year, ordered and delivered during the licence period by British Library On-Demand.

You will be able to manage your content supply online via your MyCLA dashboard where you can view your statement of account. The British Library will provide us with the usage data we need, so you are freed up with no need to tell us what you are using.
