Looks like four big time publishers have sued Georgia State University for their e-reserves program. Here’s a quick Q&A with the associate dean for academic affairs and a professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law from The Chronicle.
Looks like GSU was just putting items up on reserve without asking for and paying for copyright. Which bears some similarities to the way that we do business at UWT.
What will happen here in Tacoma? Dunno. I’m sure the Reserves Operations Group will be on top of this topic.
My hope is that we go back to course packs. Less demand on the printers in that case, eh?
