If you must make printed copies of works to be included in a coursepack for sale to students, you will need to work with the University Bookstore, where staff will take care of producing the coursepack. The Bookstore will negotiate with the publishers or copyright holders for the material you wish to use. The cost of coursepacks can vary depending on copyright fees, the number of pages and documents, and the volume of coursepacks being produced. Those costs are generally reflected in the selling price of the coursepack.

Please contact the Bookstore at or 966-4465 for more information on how to create a coursepack, as well as important deadlines.

Note: Obtaining clearances for materials can take a long time (on average of 6-8 weeks) so ensure you submit your requests early to be assured that your coursepack will be available in time.


The Copyright Office is available to help if you have questions about copyright or if you would like to schedule a presentation about copyright for you and your colleagues.
