SCHOOLS : Sign-in is required to view the reading materials

Guidelines for Course Lead
1.Placing material on reserve
  • E-course reserves material, including the bibliographic citations, must be sent to the Library Reserve Unit to in PDF format and as e-mail attachment at least two (2) weeks before commencement of the new Semester.
  • A list is active for one Semester unless the Course Leads requests that it remain active for more than one Semester, up to one year.
  • The Course Lead is responsible for making fair use and for complying with copyright restrictions when photocopying, scanning, digitising and/or placing items on reserve.
  • An article that is available electronically in a database that the Library subscribed to, will not be placed on e-course reserves.
  • The Library will place a copyright notice on an intermediary screen for e-course reserve material.
2.Applying principle of fair use
Copyright protection in Malaysia is governed by the Malaysia Copyright Act of 1987. Under the Act, the copyright in a work is infringed when a person who is not the owner of the copyright, and without consent of the owner of the copyright, makes a reproduction of the whole work or a substantial part there of either in its original or derivative form for distribution to the public.
Under certain conditions specified in the law, libraries and archives are authorised to furnish a photocopy or other reproduction. One of these specified conditions is that the photocopy or reproduction is not to be used for any purpose other than for private study, scholarship or research. The e-course reserve service operated by Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu Library works around this fair use or fair dealing principle.
Course Leads who wish to add supplementary reading materials in e-course reserve collection must consider the principle of fair use which allows for the use of copyrighted works.
Please note that there are four factors to be considered in determining whether the use constitutes a fair dealing:-
  • the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for non-profit educational purposes;
  • the nature of the copyright work;
  • the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyright work as a whole; and
  • the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyright work.
