Public Task Statement

PSI Regulations: Public Task Statement

Nottingham Trent University is a statutory Higher Education Corporation established under the Education Reform Act 1988.

The University's library is required to comply with the Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015 (the PSI Regulations). These regulate how information the library holds or creates is made available for re-use.

Statement of Public Task

This statement sets out the functions of the library at Nottingham Trent University that are within the library’s public task under the Re-use of Public Sector Information Regulations 2015. This statement was created in November 2015 and is subject to periodic review to ensure that it reflects good practice and remains consistent with the Regulations.

The public task of the library is articulated by its mission:

"At the heart of the university, we inspire and enable independent learning and research. We actively engage with our customers and make a difference by enhancing abilities and potential. We have the expertise and resources to encourage depth and breadth of creative thinking. We create an inspiring physical and on-line environment for learning and research, informed by analysis of evidence-based best practice and our own innovation – the service to go to for help, advice and support."

and in its current strategy.

The library undertakes digitisation and facilitates re-use wherever copyright law, data protection, licensing and the availability of funding will permit this. The library does not have a dedicated budget for digitisation, so is reliant on charging fees for the digitisation, supply and licensing of content in order to meet its costs.

PSI requests

If you have any query about this public task statement, wish to inquire about re-use of information under the Re-use of Public Sector Information (PSI)  Regulations, or wish to lodge a complaint about a decision made in relation to the Regulations, please email with PSI in the subject line.

In accordance with the Regulations any requests for re-use will be addressed within 20 working days or an explanation provided if a longer delay is anticipated. Complaints are addressed by the Head of Libraries & Learning Resources and if unresolved will be referred to an appropriate member of the University’s senior management.
