Copyright Clearance Services Effective Spring Semester 2009

November 17th, 2008 by David Donabedian

For Spring Semester 2009, to facilitate copyright compliance, Hunter College Libraries will offer copyright clearance services for faculty interested in using electronic reserves.  As always, note that permission must be sought for all material used repetitively, regardless of the amount.

In the past, faculty members were required to sign a Copyright Compliance Agreement, stating that all material requested for ERes was within fair-use or permission had been sought and costs paid.  

 Hunter College Faculty using ERes may now choose from the following options: 1) request that the Hunter College Libraries seek copyright permissions on their behalf, or 2) personally seek clearance for material or establish its eligibility as within “fair-use” parameters.

 The option must be specified on the new Copyright Compliance Agreement at
