Notes

Abstract:
Electronic reserves comprise approximately 70% of all reserve items at the George A. Smathers Libraries; these reserve items consist of scans of book chapters and journal articles, links to journal articles and e-books, and course syllabi and slides. All of these electronic items are subject to copyright restrictions. Following the Georgia State copyright case, the Libraries and staff have clearer, but somewhat restrictive guidelines about what they are allowed to make available electronically through fair use, and when they must pursue the purchasing of copyright permissions. As of September 16, 2012, the George A. Smathers Libraries Course Reserves Unit has already spent approximately $8,000 purchasing books and copyright permissions to post electronic copies of book chapters and articles on reserve for the Fall 2012 semester, and the Libraries additionally spent $6.5 million on e-resources for the 2012 fiscal year. This poster describes the limits of access to course reserves through the traditional routes of licensed electronic resources, fair use, and copyright permissions, the heavy monetary and time investment of pursuing those means, and some alternative means of access for certain kinds of course reserve materials. Alternative means of access include the archival of instructor-produced articles and slide decks in the Institutional Repository, publication in open access journals, and open access textbooks.
