If you are teaching a course and plan to use, post or distribute copyright protected works, UNBC’s copyright office can help you with the clearance process.  Our goal is to help you remain copyright compliant while you focus on your teaching and research.

You can simply send us your reading list or course syllabus – we will review and help you determine what requires clearance, and what you are free to use under existing licenses, statutory educational exceptions and fair dealing.  The copyright office will secure your licenses, create permalinks to e-resources and prepare your .pdfs for posting.  If you wish to incorporate copyright-protected video material in your Blackboard lessons, we can secure licensing for digitization and streaming.

Please submit your reading list early – while most licenses can be secured very quickly, some publishers do require additional time.
