To submit copyrighted material for Course Reserves, please continue to use the Faculty Request System here.
Where eBooks are not available, faculty may consider posting some of the course reading to Emory's Course Reserves System. Copyright issues are still a factor to consider when posting copyrighted materials and, as a rule of thumb, only 10% of a published work is considered "fair use for educational purposes" in copyright situations. Emory University has many options for posting copyrighted material if that material exceeds 10% of the published work. In order to take advantage of these options, copyrighted material MUST be posted in the Course Reserves Systems and linked to Canvas rather than loading content onto Canvas directly. By using the Course Reserves System, Emory University can obtain appropriate copyright clearance as well as track the number of students actually accessing the content.
When considering which materials to submit to the Course Reserves System, we ask that you consider only posting materials in one- or two-week increments until the end of the semester so (1) we can efficiently process and obtain copyright clearance for eminent classes, and (2) to further strengthen the "fair use" argument that this short-term stop gap is not suitable substitution for students buying the textbooks as normal.
If you have any questions at all, the best way to hear from the library is still to use the Faculty Request System.
