    Copyright Review of Course Materials - Fall 2017


    All course instructors whose course materials for Fall 2017 are subject to copyright review (as outlined below) are reminded to submit a Copyright Review Request Form for those readings and related materials for each such course to copyright@ualberta.ca as soon as possible.


    Given that there may be materials that require separate licences or permissions for the intended use, please provide as much lead-time as possible when submitting your Copyright Review Request Form (we normally recommend 6-8 weeks).

    Please note that the following course materials are subject to copyright review:

    a) all course materials to be distributed in print format that are reproduced from a copyright-protected source publication; and


    b) course materials that are to be distributed in electronic format where the intended selection is not within the University of Alberta Fair Dealing Guidelines or where there are other indicators that permission to distribute the selection is required (e.g., e-licence terms which do not allow for the proposed use).


    Additional details are available on this website.

    The submission requirements for the copyright review of course materials for Fall 2017 have not changed from what has been in place for recent academic terms.  However, please note that there is now a new Use of Copyright Material Procedure (UAPPOL), along with a new “Course Materials Copyright Information Document” that formalize and clarify these practices.


    If you have any questions or require assistance, please contact the Copyright Help Desk at copyright@ualberta.ca.
