Copyright Information

Note: The following information is for course instructors. Students wondering about required coursepacks or textbooks can use the Bookstore Textbook Search.

The Bookstore must verify that all coursepack production at the University of the Fraser Valley complies with Canadian copyright laws and the terms of UFV's negotiated licenses and contractual obligations. Before the Bookstore can produce a coursepack, you MUST submit the following documents with your coursepack materials:

1. Signed Statement of Copyright Compliance

2. Completed Bookstore Copyright Log

3. Any applicable records of permission

The Coursepacks section in the UFV Copyright Guide contains instructions and information about completing these forms. Blank forms can also be downloaded from this guide. Contact the Copyright Librarian if you have any copyright questions or concerns about your coursepack content.

Coursepack Submission:

Once you have completed securing copyright, you must submit:

  1. Your master copy*
  2. Coursepack request form
  3. Statement of copyright compliance, copyright log, record of permission (if applicable), either electronically to or in the mail to "Coursespack, Abbotsford H157."

NEW: An electronic submission process is now available for the Statement of Copyright Compliance. No printing, scanning, or emailing is necessary:

*If you are not in possession of a master copy, it is possible that the Bookstore or Print Services does have one, however the instructor is responsible for ensuring use of the correct version.

Coursepacks submitted after these deadlines may not be available for the course start date.
