Copyright and AI


AI in education and navigating its acceptable use is currently a hot topic!

If you would like to know if you can use content produced by a generative AI tool as part of your research in preparing teaching resources, please check with your Program Lead or Department Manager.

Please note that there are potential risks including possible compliance breaches associated with using information from generative AI sources. You may find that the information and/or attribution given is out of date or otherwise incorrect and should not be treated as an academic and/or credible source.

If you would like information on how to create references from generative AI sources, please see the library services referencing page. For further information about copyright and AI, please contact the Copyright Librarian. 

Section 113P Notice can be included on print and electronic resources (replaces Part V5)

PLEASE NOTE: BKI does NOT have a Statutory Broadcast Licence.
