Course Packs and Electronic Reserve

Institutions that license APA electronic products through a site license with APA may incorporate parts of the Licensed Materials in electronic course packs and electronic reserve collection for the use by Authorized Users in a particular course of instruction at the Licensee's institution. The following restrictions apply:

  • The electronic database may not be used to produce printed (hard copy) course packs
  • The electronic database may not be used for CD-ROM versions of course packs
  • No commercial use or resale is permitted

Each such item shall carry appropriate acknowledgment of the source, listing title and author of the extract, title and author of the work, and the publisher.

Access to stated materials is to be controlled by security measures.

Copies of items designated for an electronic course pack or electronic reserve shall be deleted by the Licensee when they are no longer used for that purpose.

Course packs in non-electronic non-print perceptible form, such as audio or Braille, may also be offered to Authorized Users who are visually impaired. Permission for other reproduction should be sought from the Publisher, via the APA Permissions Office.
