August 20, 2020 – Danvers, Mass. – Copyright Clearance Center, Inc. (CCC), a leader in advancing copyright, accelerating knowledge, and powering innovation, announces Deseret Book Company, the market-leader in the publishing, distribution and retailing of faith-based books serving members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is enabling the compliant reuse of content in the academic setting through CCC’s Annual Copyright License for Academic Institutions.

CCC enables patrons and staff to more easily access and use copyrighted content, on campus or at home. CCC offers integrated licensing, content and analytics solutions designed to help students, faculty and staff get the information they need, the rights to use it, and the insight to maximize the value of their content purchase.

Created in partnership with colleges and universities, the Annual Copyright License addresses the unique copyright challenges faced by today’s academic institutions.

CCC’s Pay-Per-Use Permissions Services, in which Deseret Book also participates, deliver quick and easy single-use rights licensing options for faculty, students and staff at academic institutions and service providers to use content from the world’s leading titles in science, technology, medicine, news, finance and more.

“From course management systems to e-reserves, remote learning technology is changing the way faculty, staff and students use information during the pandemic,” said Emily Sheahan, Vice President & Managing Director, CCC. “CCC’s integrated licensing, content and analytics solutions make it easy for members of the academic community to use content in a copyright compliant manner online, in print, in the classroom or at home.”
