Copying Student Papers
An instructor copies the papers submitted by the students in her class and brings them to the Libraries to place on reserve. Does the instructor need permission from each student to copy their paper and share it with others?
The students' papers are copyrighted and each of the students will own the copyright to their papers. The instructor will need permission from each student to copy the papers. She should get the permissions before bringing the papers to the Libraries.
If an instructor gets permission to copy a student authored work for use in Libraries reserves, she would need new permission to use the work again during any subsequent academic term.Posted by Copyright Information and Education
