University of Otago – Case Study

Considering the complex interactions between educational materials and licensing requirements, universities have to devote significant resources to reading list creation and copyright management.

With over 20,000 students, nearly 1,700 academic staff members and more than 185 undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of study, New Zealand’s University of Otago has a tremendous amount of materials to manage.

To get on top of their educational resource needs the university began its implementation of eReserve Plus in 2015. We spoke to Richard White – manager of copyright and open access at Otago and the project manager for the implementation – to learn more about how materials and copyright management have changed as a result.
