Copyright & Author's Rights

Intellectual property is any form of knowledge or expression created with one’s intellect.

Copyright protects original artistic, literary, musical, or dramatic works, written materials and software, by preventing anyone from copying, publishing or broadcasting a work without the copyright owner’s permission.

Copyright exists as soon as the work is created and is often signaled by marking the work © (author’s name, year). Note: copyright does not protect ideas, but rather the expression of ideas.

Journal Hosting Service

Supported by the Library, Queen's Journal Hosting Service provides an immediate and efficient publication facility for Queen’s faculty and students who wish to publish an online journal, series or proceedings publication.    

Overdue Items & Fines, Lost or Damaged Materials

Overdue items and fines

Overdue notices are sent, Monday to Friday, as a courtesy to remind borrowers of a missed due date. The overdue notice does not absolve a borrower of responsibility to return or renew materials. For Queen’s students, faculty and staff, the email address used for all Library notices is the patron’s Queens’s NetID.

We charge overdue fines for all overdue materials, recalled items and Reserves.

Open Access to Everything Else

The Open Access movement is growing in momentum both nationally and internationally. It is increasingly recognized that the value, use and application of intellectual works increases the more broadly they are available to be considered, shared, and used by others both within the research community, industry and society as a whole.

Here are a sample of useful links to Open Access initiatives in other areas of research, scholarship, education and government, both in Canada and internationally.
