Clarifying the Coursepack Order Process

If you are thinking about assigning a coursepack in an upcoming term, you may find it helpful to know that SUBprint Copy Centre (Edmonton) handles printing and production, while the Copyright Office is responsible for performing the copyright compliance review.

Any questions relating to the production process, such as initiating new and repeat orders, requesting the addition and removal of course readings, may be directed to SUBprint. All questions relating to the inclusion of copyright material and the review process may be sent to the Copyright Help Desk.

When preparing a new coursepack, download and send a completed Copyright Review Form to If we reviewed your coursepack in a previous term, use the finalized form we emailed you following our last review. Once you have made any changes, send the updated form to If you are not sure which form to use or if you would like us to resend your old form, feel free to contact our Help Desk for assistance.
