Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need copyright permission for everything I put on eReserve?

No, we do not need to get permission for everything placed on eReserve; however, faculty should do a "Fair Use" analysis of each document to determine is copyright permission is necessary. If the document source is a book or journal owned by Carleton/St.Olaf it would weigh more heavily in favor of fair use. For further help in determining fair use you may contact your library liaison.
