Copyright Compliance

All course readings posted/made available to students at Toronto Metropolitan University need to be copyright compliant. The Toronto Metropolitan University Fair Dealing Guideline limits the amount of material you can make available to your students to 10% of a work or 1 chapter. Any amount beyond that will need further permission via E-Reserves.
