Completing your Copyright Licence Agency census report


This article explains how to download your Copyright Licence Agency (CLA) census report from Talis Aspire Digitised Content (TADC). 

Accessing the report

In your TADC tenancy under the Reports tab, you will see the option for "CLA census report". You then have the option to set your reporting period. Depending on where you are in the CLA cycle of reporting you can then select to download only the new items for that year or the full items across your whole tenancy. 

What does the report include?

The CLA report only details those requests necessary for reporting under the terms of your license, requests that were ultimately unsuccessful for whatever reason are not included. The report can be downloaded in CSV or Excel in a format approved and acceptable by the CLA.

How is the use of shared vault reported to CLA (UK)?

In the CLA Census Report (the Digital Copy Record Form) will display the following:

  • column J ("Source") value will be D
  • column K will contain the name of the copy source Higher Education Institution (HEI).
