This paper describes how copyright compliance is managed in a large Australian university, with consideration of both the role the university library plays and also how copyright matters external to the library are managed. The paper looks at the changes in distribution technology and copyright legislation over the last decade, and examines the changes in the University’s ability to disseminate teaching materials, as well as the changes in the requirements for managing the use of copyright material.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
