Course Pack Production

The University has renewed the licence agreement on course pack production by photocopying and entered into a licence agreement on course pack production by scanning (the “Licence Agreements”) with The Hong Kong Reprographic Rights Licensing Society Limited (“HKRRLS”) for a term of two years from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2022 for producing course packs for students with materials licensed from licensing bodies through the HKRRLS. The cost of course pack comprises a licence fee of $0.95/page for 2021 and $1/page for 2022, payable to HKRRLS within the reproduction limits as set out in the Licence Agreements, plus the charges for reprographic services as promulgated by the Reprographic Unit of CPA from time to time.

All staff are reminded to observe the terms and conditions of the Licence Agreement and the provisions of the Copyright Ordinance.

Extracts of the Licence Agreement and the procedural guidelines for course pack production pursuant to the Licence Agreement are available in the FO intranet. For further clarification on the above, please contact fo.coursepack@polyu.edu.hk
