The Teaching section of this guide is addressed to staff only.
You operate under these guidelines if your purpose is to teach students or otherwise support the educational purpose of the University.
The University recognises that the use of copyright material is central to its functions as a teaching and research institution, and supports and encourages the legitimate use of third-party copyright materials to enhance its teaching and research activities.
The University has entered into commercial licence agreements with numerous publishers and vendors that provide for greater access to academic material, databases and software. Access and use of this material are subject to individual licence agreements. These subscription-based electronic resources now make up the bulk of the Library collection.
To facilitate copyright compliance, TUA’s Copyright Policy sets out that “the Library may require staff to follow specified procedures for making teaching materials available to students through the Learning Management System”. TUA has introduced eReserve Plus as the nominated system to facilitate the management of subject Reading Lists. Reading Lists for all subjects are linked from the left hand menu in BlackBoard/Canvas.
The University may rely on the statutory education licence as set out section 113P (Part IVA Division 4) of the Copyright Act (formerly Part VB) for copying and communicating copyright material for educational purposes. To enable the University to rely on the statutory education licence, the University has entered into a remuneration agreement with the relevant collecting society – Copyright Agency.
Refer to the different teaching topics on the left hand menu for more details.
Scanned book chapters or articles that are copied under the statutory education licence MUST be delivered to students via the Library’s eReserve Reading Lists – NOT uploaded as PDFs in BlackBoard/Canvas.
TUA has introduced eReserve Plus to facilitate the management of subject Reading Lists. Reading Lists for all subjects are linked from the left hand menu in BlackBoard/Canvas.
All reproductions made under the statutory licence will be delivered to students via this repository in each BlackBoard/Canvas site. The exception may be where multiple images are used to illustrate module content such as PowerPoint presentations for lectures, but all images should be fully referenced.
