A collection of sample policies, forms, and procedures for the college or university environment. This new handbook and CD-ROM package is divided into three parts -- Student and Faculty Services, Administrative Policies, and Collection Maintenance.
It is the first ClipNote to use excerpts, many of which are hyperlinked, from more than 60 libraries. For each collection development policy element, the ClipNote provides examples of not only traditional policy language but also examples of unique, forward thinking or strategic language.
This CLIP Note has been developed to serve as a resource for those who create or update academic library and campus copyright policies. It offers a compilation of copyright policies in use at college and university libraries. It provides information on policy content, copyright monitoring, and educating on copyright. This collection of selected copyright policies, covering a range of print and digital resources, will assist library and campus personnel with their own work.
