Copyright Policy at Edgewood College: Course Packs & Readings

A guide to how the Edgewood College Copyright Policy works

Print Course Packs

The college bookstore will handle obtaining copyright clearance and put together printed course packs for Edgewood faculty. You will need to fill out a request form for each selected reading and submit with a photocopy of the original. Call ext. 2213 for more information.

Reserve Readings

It is always acceptable to put books, videos, or other original material on reserve in the library for students to use there. The library also provides access to electronic reserves through a password-protected e-reserve system that can also be linked to a class BlackBoard web site.

See Course Reserves on the library website for submission forms and our policy. Be sure that all material submitted for reserve meet the guidelines below.

Journal and periodical articles:

Use links to full text articles in library databases whenever possible.

Photocopies should be made from the original publication and be legible. Include a complete citation on the first page:

  • Only ONE article from a single issue of a journal
  • Readings should be made from the original publication and be legible
  • Periodical title
  • Title of the article
  • Author
  • Volume, year and page numbers
  • Publisher's copyright statement if available
  • Copyright clearance is necessary for additional articles from the same issue

Book Chapters:

Use links to e-books in the library catalog whenever possible.

Photocopies should be made from the original publication and be legible. Include a complete citation on the first page:
