A change in approach is the implementation of Fair Dealing Guidelines at the University of Manitoba. The Guidelines and their supporting documents were prepared by members of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. The University of Manitoba also signed an agreement with Access Copyright which is in effect from 2011-2015.
Another change at the University is the establishment of a Copyright Office.The Copyright Office will provide educational programs and general advice on copyright issues, coordinate a centralized copyright clearance service and strive to ensure the University maintains a robust compliance program in accordance with the Copyright Act and University policies and guidelines.
See the Resources Web page for a copyright checklist, a slide presentation for instructors, video tutorials, a copyright clearance form and more. Copyright Office staff can help you determine allowable uses, request copyright clearance on your behalf and pay clearance fees when required. Contact the Copyright Officer if you have questions about copyright or if you would like to schedule a presentation about copyright for you and your colleagues.
