APIs


Check Permissions

CLA provides an API that enables third parties to search for a title, check whether it is included under a specific CLA licence, and verify the permissions granted by that licence.

The Check Permissions API is currently provided free of charge but CLA reserves the right to introduce charges in future.

The Functional Specifications of the Check Permissions API can be accessed here and the current Terms of Use can be accessed here.

If you would like to use the Check Permissions API in your application, please contact us at api@cla.co.uk

 

Course Content (DCS)

CLA provides an API that enables Reading List platforms used by UK Higher Education Institutions to integrate and retrieve links to content that have been generated in the Digital Content Store (DCS) for a particular course of study.

The Course Content API is currently provided free of charge but CLA reserves the right to introduce charges in the future.

Please see Documentation for the Course Content API and the current Terms of Use for further information.
