Create Your Coursepacket in 3 Easy Steps!

  1. Provide a complete Citation List for all articles in the order in which they are to be included in the coursepacket.

    Copyright clearance services are provided on all course packs produced at the BGS Copy Center and are essential in maintaining legal compliance for Brown University. The citation list you provide allows us to obtain the required legal copyright clearance permissions for your articles.

    You can find the university copyright policy by clicking here.

    Why is copyright compliance important?

    Copyright infringement lawsuits are being raised in copy shops and on campuses nationwide. With settlements reaching as high as $20 million—it is critical to request permission for and pay royalty fees on all copyrighted items included in your course pack.
