Monash University                           About two years ago, the Library prepared a brochure for academic staff   
                                            on Copyright. This was an initiative of the Copyright Advisory Committee  
                                            that I chair. The University Solicitor has also prepared some notes on    
                                            this in collaboration with the Copyright Adv Committee, and this is now   
                                            available on the Web. There are plans to update the Copyright brochure    
                                            and place this on the Web for the information of all academic staff.

University of New South Wales               As this institution is a party to the e-reserve case before the           
                                            Copyright Tribunal, it does not sanction the use of digital materials of  
                                            an e-reserve kind.  Presumably, academics use digital material from the   
                                            Web as they see fit for research and teaching.  The Library has not       
                                            prepared any information on the use of digital material because the       
                                            whole issue is so uncertain. Study Kits material prepared.
