Copyright Best Practices

Journals
  • Articles published in journals subscribed to by the St. Lawrence University libraries do not require copyright permission.
  • Articles published before 1923 (Copyright Law enacted) are considered to be in the “public domain” and do not require copyright permission.
  • Entire issues of journals may not be shared with your students.

FAQ:  How can I share articles published in journals to which SLU does not subscribe?

Answer:  Staff members at ODY and Launders Science library can post these articles on "electronic reserve" for you.  The library will obtain and pay for copyright permissions. Permission is granted for a given class, for a given semester.

Books
  • Books or excerpts from books owned by the St. Lawrence University libraries do not require copyright permission.
  • Books or excerpts from books published before 1923 (when the Copyright Law was enacted) are considered to be in the “public domain” and do not require copyright permission.
  • No more than approximately 10% of a book may be shared electronically.

FAQ:  How can I share more than 10% of a book?

Answer:  Staff members at ODY and Launders Science library can put a physical copy of a book on "reserve" for you.  Or, you can ask the students to purchase the book.

Course-packs
  • All materials included in Course-packs sold through Brewer Bookstore require copyright permissions.  The library will obtain copyright permissions; the cost of permissions will be added to the sale price of the course-pack.
