Full Bibliographic information is needed for your readings.

Please note: 
It is useful to supply the copyright pages at the front of a book and the Table of Contents page for book chapters with the hardcopy of the reading.

Required information for each reading supplied:

  • Author name
  • Editor name if applicable
  • Title of the book/journal
  • Page Count of entire book
  • Title of the Article or Book Chapter
  • Number of Pages of the article that you wish to use. This includes endnotes.
  • Publisher name
  • Year or date of publication (if it is a journal article please include Issue number and Volume number)
  • City/Country of publication for books
  • ISBN (books) or ISSN (journals). This is especially useful for journals or books that do not have unique names.

  1. Journal articles and book chapters must be from print sources in most cases. We usually do not have a licence to course pack an article or book chapter from an electronic source. If you have articles from electronic journals or e-books and cannot locate a print version these should be processed through e-reserves.
  2. If the content is your own, and you own full copyright (you have not assigned it to a publisher) please indicate this in your course pack submission.
  3.  Material from the Internet is not covered under licensing agreements, and permission status must be assessed. This material may not be able to be permissioned for print course pack use. The best way to make material available from the Internet for course readings is to submit a request through e-reserves at reserve@ryerson.ca.
  4.  Please make sure that photocopies of material you supply for your Custom Course Manuals are clear and of good quality. If the photocopies you provide are too poor quality they have the potential to inhibit the ability for your material to be made accessible to all students.
