Brock's Licence with Access Copyright
In June 2012, Brock University signed a licence with Access Copyright which allows Brock instructors to copy published materials, such as books and journals, and distribute them to students both in print and digitally. The licence is due to expire on December 31, 2015. In the meantime, Brock is reviewing its copyright practices and determining the best way to manage copyright at Brock.

Brock University’s licence with Access Copyright gives the Brock community rights to copy and share published materials.
The licence supplements Brock’s existing copying rights under the Copyright Act and Brock’s library licences for e-journals, e-books and multimedia resources.
