Accurate copyright reports are quickly and easily generated with the click of a mouse, making cumbersome and inefficient processes a thing of the past
Copyright compliance and reporting at academic institutions has typically been hampered by disconnected processes throughout the entire workflow; a lack of standardisation in the approval and review process can lead to a quagmire of backlogs when it comes to copyright management and report creation.
Fortunately, with the right tools in place, copyright managers can drastically cut down on the time and effort required for ensuring that all areas of an institution remain in line with copyright law and legal requirements.
This is where eReserve Plus comes in, eliminating inefficiencies and enabling a more streamlined process through automation.
What is eReserve Plus?
eReserve Plus is a reading list management and copyright reporting repository software that puts academics, librarians, and copyright management staff on the same page for the selection, review and reporting of educational materials presented to students.
Academics can easily create course reading lists, librarians can efficiently manage these requests and check them against copyright obligations, and compliance staff can seamlessly review all activity and generate reports to ensure transparency and monitor resource and material usage. This takes the headache out of the copyright approval process while mitigating noncompliance risks for an institution.
eReserve Plus is an essential aid in managing copyright obligations across all schools, colleges and faculties – establishing a streamlined workflow, helping to mitigate the risk of noncompliance and easing the workload for staff in all areas of the process.
Reading list creation, material requests processing and intellectual property law compliance are made simple and streamlined through eReserve Plus’ automation and highly usable system capabilities.
Navigating intellectual property rights and copyright requirements is no easy feat, especially with local variations in legal obligations from one country to the next. With experience in a number of regions, eReserve helps ensure compliance, no matter where you are in the world.
