Open Access

Open access is defined as the dissemination of scientific and scholarly research literature online, free of charge, and free of unnecessary licensing restrictions.

For more information on Open Access, please see DeDe Dawson's LibGuide to Open Access.



USask has a Copyright Coordinator to assist you. From their website:

"Copyright simply means, the right to copy. It gives the exclusive legal right to the author or creator of an original work to decide how or when that work is used. If you are not the author or creator of the work(s), you will need permission to use it"

The University of Saskatchewan has ended its agreement with Access Copyright August 31, 2011.

This means:

  • Course materials for the upcoming year need to be prepared before August 31, 2011.
  • Course material can be printed in the usual manner provided they are printed prior to August 31, 2011.


*You cannot post copies of copyrighted material online for your students, but you can post links to licenced materials purchased by the Library.

** If you would like to create online links to library-licenced materials for your students please see this guide to creating "Persistant Links" (I am available to help!).

Please see this Copyright Website for more information.

Confused?  Have copyright questions?  Can't find what you're looking for?  Contact the Copyright Coordinator at 966-8817 or for more information.
