Copyright Clearance Services for Electronic Reserve
Effective Fall 2008, to facilitate copyright compliance, Hunter College Libraries offer copyright clearance services for faculty interested in using electronic reserves. As always, note that permission 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. See http://library.hunter.cuny.edu/eres/eres_copyright.htm to view the policy for this service.
