In order for a Printing/Photocopy job request to be completed by Print Services, you MUST submit a Statement of Copyright Compliance:
If your job request involves the duplication of multiple copyrighted works, use as many Additional References forms as necessary to list each one of these works.
For more information, please see the Copying Guidelines and Fair Dealing Requirements sections of this guide.
Print Services must verify that all print jobs requested at the University of the Fraser Valley comply with Canadian copyright laws and the terms of UFV’s negotiated licenses and contractual obligations. You are required to provide the appropriate documentation for their records, which consists of completing the forms found on the Print Services website. These forms are also available in the Print Services Forms box on this page.
See the Print Services Division for more information about the printing services offered at the Abbotsford and Chilliwack campuses.
The fair dealing exceptions of the Copyright Act allow you to copy “short excerpts” of content for educational purposes. A “short excerpt” includes: up to 10% of a work, 1 chapter from a book, 1 article from a periodical, 1 artistic work, 1 poem, or 1 entry from a reference work like an encyclopedia. If 1 chapter of a book is more than 10% of the book, the 1 chapter may be copied. You must cite your source.
