Despite the fact that many publishers respond to course packet requests within a few days, we recommend submitting your requests at least 4-6 weeks prior to the start of term if possible. By doing so, you can obtain greater flexibility in choosing alternate readings if needed, allow slower publishers more time to respond, and avoid the inevitable bottleneck at the copy centers in the last few weeks before the start of each term. Also, it is a good idea to bring your originals to the copy center as soon as possible. Even if all permissions have not been cleared for use, bringing originals to the copy center allows the center to create a master file for your packet. Each copy center that produces course packets is directly linked via computer to the Copyright Permissions Center and last minute changes to the packet can be made easily and accurately. Below you will find the "deadlines" for the upcoming academic year:
Copy Center Date
|Start of Term|
|Summer 2012||May 25, 2012||June 1, 2012||June 11, 2012|
|Fall 2012||August 10, 2012||August 17, 2012||September 4, 2012|
|Spring 2013||December 14, 2012||December 21, 2012||January 22, 2013|
We will accept course packet requests at any time. Dates listed above are guidelines used to ensure your packet is available in the bookstore prior to the start of term. We will also accept departmental/special requests at any time, however, our office recommends you try to avoid submitting these requests during our course packet rush (see dates listed above), if possible, for optimal turnaround times.
