The Library provides the University’s eReserve service which allows teaching staff to make essential print resources available online directly to their students via Moodle (the University’s Learning Management System).
The UB Copyright Procedure, which reflects the Copyright Act 1968 (Cth) (external site), mandates that the online communication of print copyright material must be arranged through the Library, and that the Library will ensure compliance in respect to copyright in reliance of the University’s Part VB (print and graphic material) statutory licence.
Essentially this means that for copyright reasons, you are not permitted to scan or copy book chapters or journal articles and upload them onto Moodle yourself. In relation to the online communication of print resources, the reasonable portion copying limits apply to the University as a whole. Therefore, while you might be making copies within the limits, you won’t be aware of other teaching staff also making digital copies of the same material for their students. Arranging online access to print resources via the Library’s eReserve service allows this to be monitored.
To make book chapters and journal articles available online fill in the online submission form.
You will need to include details of the course you are teaching as well as the full citation details of the items.
We request that you allow five working days for the items to be processed. Items are processed in order of receipt.
The Library’s eReserve staff will source, digitise and upload the material for you – you don’t need to provide it.
You will receive an email that contains the link to the item that you can then copy and paste into your Moodle course page for access by your students.
Where the UB Library subscribes to an eBook or online journal you have requested, a digital copy will not be provided. Instead, you will be emailed a persistent link to the document that you can link to from Moodle. Linking is always preferable to copying.
