Exception handicap au droit d’auteur

By ministerial decree of June 24, 2021,  CY Cergy Paris Université is included on the list of establishments authorized to distribute adaptations of works for the needs of people with disabilities.
The exception to copyright for persons with disabilities, defined in articles L 122-5, L 122-5-1, L 122-5-2 and R 122-13 to R 122-22 of the French Intellectual Property Code, allows public libraries (territorial or academic) authorized to communicate and adapt works under law, for the benefit of their users who are prevented from reading because of a disorder or disability.

If you are a student or staff with a disability, you can request access to works that benefit from a digital adaptation.

In particular, you can benefit from access to the works available in the PLATON catalog of the Bn. If a work is not available in the PLATON catalogue, the disability referent of the library may ask approved organizations if they have an adapted version of the work sought.

Who can benefit from this service, and how ?

  • University students must first contact the reception service for disabled students, which will validate their right to the disability exception to copyright. Once the right has been validated and after signing a commitment charter, request can be sent to a disability referent of the library.
  • University staff send their requests to a disability referent of the library, after signing a declaration on honor, to be attached with the first request.

You agree to make strictly personal use of the adapted documents provided by the Library.
