Material available digitally or as print handout
The Copyright Advisory Office is now offering a clearance service for both print handouts and for scanned copies of print materials. Posting scanned materials (eg. print book chapters) that fall outside the limits set out in the Queen's Fair dealing policy without going through the Copyright Advisory Office may infringe copyright.
Send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org:
- Class Information (number of students, course name and number, course term).
- Publication Information (Title of Work, Author, Publication year, Journal Volume, Issue and Year (if applicable), and page numbers).
- How the material will be used (Handout, In Moodle, On a Password Protected Website)
After you provide this information, we will follow up with you regarding any next steps that need to be taken. Please wait to get confirmation from us before providing students with access to any materials submitted through this service. Please submit your materials as soon as possible for the Fall ab term – even if you have to submit material piece-by-piece. Contact with publishers can sometimes take a while, so the more quickly you submit, the better the chance that we will be able to get permission in time.
Who is this best for? If you have a small class or a limited number of digitized print works, this service is the best route for providing materials to your class.
