Welcome to the Copyright Agency Master Copy Catalogue – an online catalogue of copyright works in alternate formats for people with print disabilities.
The catalogue enables you to easily upload and search for copyright works in alternate formats such as Braille, large print, digital and audio.
About the Masters Catalogue
Originally launched in 2003, the Copyright Agency Master Copy Catalogue was developed to provide efficient access to works in alternate formats under the Statutory Licence for the print disabled.
Organisations operating under the Statutory Education Licence are required to enter into the catalogue the details of any works they have created in alternate formats. Other users can then search the Master Copy Catalogue and request the relevant alternate format of a copyright work required by their student or patron.
Access to a centralised catalogue of alternate works helps minimize the cost and substantial effort involved in converting works into alternate formats.
Access to the Master Copy Catalogue is available to those institutions assisting people with a print disability and operates under the Statutory Education Licence. This includes all universities, TAFEs and most schools. Institutions that are not educational, but assist those with a print disability, such as charities, are eligible to apply to use the catalogue.
The service is operated by Copyright Agency free of charge. To find out more about the Master Copy Catalogue and the Statutory Licence for institutions assisting people with a print disability, click here.
