The Library Learning Commons offers course reserves so that high-demand materials are available on a fair and equitable basis to all students. The use of the reserve must not substitute for the purchase of books, course packs, or other published materials.
What Can I Put on Reserve?
NOTE: You can link to most articles in the library databases using persistent links. These can be included on Blackboard. You can do this yourself using these instructions or you can contact Copyright Services for assistance. You can link to required and supplementary readings. Linking is not an infringement of copyright and gives students more equitable access to articles than putting them on reserve.

As of January 1, 2011, our course reserves procedures for photocopies have been revised to be compliant with the George Brown College Fair Dealing Policy adopted under the advice of the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC). Under the fair dealing exception in the Canadian Copyright Act users of material under copyright can copy material for the purpose of research or private study as long as the dealing is fair. Copying limitations you see here have been determined by the Association of Canadian Community Colleges as being fair. See the Copyright Services web site page for more information.
