During the COVID-19 emergency, academic departments are having to adapt their teaching plans, some using work-arounds such as loading a limited number of scanned PDFs, of only key chapters of books, on Vula, as needed. Copyright fees are arranged through the Publishers Liaison Office at UCT.
To aid in this, the Publishers Liaison Office has been able to adopt some very helpful emergency measures to help with the lockdown.

- Emergency measures for copyright clearance – Western Cape universities
