To request copyright clearance for course materials, instructors should use the Course Resource Lists service and include any items in need to clearance on their list. Library staff will ensure copyright is cleared where necessary.
In order to assist instructors in their efforts to operate responsibly under the Copyright Act of Canada, Leddy Library offers a centralized service to clear copyright on protected materials to be used for classroom instruction.
- It often takes several weeks to get copyright cleared; allow at least 6 to 8 weeks for the library to obtain clearance
- Each new use (i.e. semester) requires a new clearance request
