Do I need to get copyright permission to provide documents (e.g. articles and book chapters in PDF format) via the Library's electronic reserves system?


Use of the library's e-reserves system is governed by Rush's Copyright Compliance policy (OP-0365), and documents stored in the e-reserves system are protected under Copyright Laws of the United States (Title 17 U.S. Code). If you limit materials to single articles from journals or individual chapters from books already owned by a faculty member or the Library, you may request that these be digitized by the Library. They will be placed in a password-protected page designated for your course and will be accessible only to students enrolled in the course. These materials will be removed from the e-reserves system at the end of the term. If you plan to use these materials again, you must get permission from the copyright holder. Note that "documents" in this case refers to PDFs and scanned copies of physical books and journals, not links to the library's e-journal and e-book subscriptions, which may be used without restriction.
