Are your teaching materials copyright compliant?

If you wish for the following teaching resources to be placed in UTSOnline or in the Library’s eReadings collection, you must submit requests to do so to the Digital Resources Register and Digitisation Service located in UTS Library:

  • Lecture notes or slides that contain copyright material -ex tables, graphs, images, from books or journal articles, or copyrightable material copied from the internet
  • Journal articles or book extracts for which you don’t own the copyright or haven’t obtained written permission from the copyright holder to communicate
  • Images copied from books or journal articles
  • Images, text or extracts of pages copied from websites (except sites which clearly give permission to copy and communicate)

Once you have submitted your request, Library staff will:

  • check for copyright compliance and add a compulsory copyright notice and add a compulsory copyright notice
  • convert material into PDF format, reducing file size for easy download and printing
  • locate any material not supplied from Library resources or via inter-library loan
  • place the digitised item in the Library’s eReadings if required
  • send you an email containing a link to the digitised item which can be added to UTSOnline

Lecture notes for which you or UTS own the copyright may also be submitted for digitisation and conversion to PDF format.
