Community invited to comment on model Access Copyright license
A new webpage on the University Library website allows faculty, staff and students the opportunity to comment on the model license agreed to by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) and Access Copyright.
“Feedback from the community is important as Queen’s moves closer to making a decision,” says the university’s copyright specialist Mark Swartz. “I will do my best to provide information to members of the university community in response to comments and concerns.”
The university signed a non-binding letter of intent last month aimed at providing more time for considering whether to accept the model license.
“We have a window for discussion prompted by comments and questions from our community,” says Provost and Vice-Principal (Academic) Alan Harrison. “Copyright is a complex matter and we need to consider our decision carefully.”
From the webpage, community members can enter their net id and password to access the comment form.
The deadline for the university’s decision on whether to support the new Access Copyright model license is June 30.
