Copyright Permissions Service
Submit Request: Course Material Request Form
The SPRING 2020 deadline for guaranteed processing of course pack submissions by the start of the semester has passed but we accept submissions at any time.
These dates are a guideline to allow sufficient time for permission clearance and processing.
- Fill out the Course Material Request Form or send your course reading citations to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Course Reserves will find items locally held or licensed, and we will process the necessary copyright permissions for the other items.
- You will be notified when the pack is complete
- Your students can access/purchase their Digital Course Packs via the Library Course page on the course's Canvas site.
If you have a printed course pack that does not require permissions, please contact your nearest University of Minnesota Digital Print Center directly.
- Send your course reading citations to email@example.com
- Take your original copies, along with a Course Pack Order Form, to one of the University Digital Print Centers
- Your students will be able to purchase the pack in the Bookstore when classes begin
- Send your request, valid EFS string, required item information (e.g., title, author, pages) and number needed to firstname.lastname@example.org
- You will be notified when the permissions have been obtained.
The Copyright Permissions Service is here to assist faculty and staff at the University of Minnesota in acquiring permissions to use copyrighted items in their scholarship, course websites, course packs, Libraries Reserve and other University-related purposes. We can help with permissions if the item is not in the public domain, available under a Creative Commons license or already covered by an existing license. We can also obtain permissions if you don't think your use is covered by any of the exceptions or limitations, including fair use or you just feel unsure whether your use is a fair use.
