Coursepacks - Twin Cities Library, Saint Mary's University of Minnesota

Home > Services > Faculty Support > Copyright Assistance > Coursepacks


Coursepacks are copyright-protected collections of materials (articles, book chapters, case studies, course notes, instructor's own works) assembled by instructors, bound by third-parties, and then purchased by students. Coursepacks are practical when instructors want to assign materials not readily available through the Twin Cities Library, excerpts from multiple books, or articles with strict licensing restrictions (e.g. Harvard Business Review articles).

The Twin Cities Campus Bookstore will assist with coursepack creation, obtain permission to use copyrighted works, give a cost estimate for an individual course pack, and make available the coursepacks to students. Faculty should bring materials to the bookstore two months before the coursepack is needed by students. Instructors must seek copyright permission on coursepack materials every semester.
