The Copyright Permissions Center is a division
of Printing Services and a comprehensive permission service established for the University
of Minnesota in 1992. The Copyright Permissions Center works closely
with publishers, rightsholders, and the University of Minnesota
Office of the General Counsel to ensure proper use of copyrighted
materials. The center, in conjunction with Printing
Services Copy Centers, has also partnered with University
Bookstores and University Libraries to facilitate the dissemination
of copyrighted material through course packets and library reserve.
Additionally, we assist in reviewing material and securing permission
when needed for copyrighted materials to be used in books, theses,
workshops, seminars, multimedia projects, websites, and all types
of departmental activities.
The Copyright Permissions Center has two staff members with extensive knowledge of copyright laws and experience with the permissions process. Each year we process over 10,000 permissions requests utilizing a database comprised of over 3,500 publishers and rightsholders. The center is registered with Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) and has agreements with several large publishers, including Harvard Business School Publishing and the American Psychological Association, enabling us to offer immediate clearance on registered works.
