Copyright permission may be required if you need to make a copy (paper or electronic) of an article for your class, in a course pack, for Library reserve, or any other use. The Library can attempt to obtain permission for you to use most book chapters, magazine, journal or newspaper articles. Permission must be obtained each semester. Contact Dana Tuley-Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org), Systems Librarian, x7390 with as much information as possible on the article to be used, including publication title, article title, date, author, page numbers and ISSN as well as the number of students in the class and if the material will be distributed electronically or on paper.
Materials placed on traditional reserve are available to students in print at the OCCC Library. The Library can place purchased materials on reserve without obtaining copyright permission. However, making multiple copies of such materials and placing those copies on reserve does require copyright permission, in most cases. Print copies of articles on reserve are limited to one semester or less unless permission has been obtained. Contact a librarian or the Library Director if you wish to keep any article on reserve more than one semester.
