Locating the Title and Copyright Pages

When submitting eReserves requests, you will need to provide us with the title page (not the cover page) and the copyright information page of the material you are submitting. e.g. If you are submitting chapter 5 of a book, be sure to provide us with a copy of the title page and copyright information page of the entire book in addition to the chapter you want to place on eReserves.

If you are requesting a journal article, we ask that you provide us with a copy of the table of contents from the journal issue the article was taken, and the copyright information page. e.g. If you are submitting an article on pages 140-156 of a journal, be sure to provide us with a copy of the table of contents and copyright information page of the journal issue the article appears in in addition to the article you want to place on eReserves.

Books

The title page of a book contains information about the title, author, and (usually) publisher of the book. It is located near the front of the book, before the text begins. It should look something like this:

title page of Reading & Writing Japanese

The copyright page of a book is usually immediately after the Title page. It contains additional information about the publisher, the date of publication and/or copyright, and ISBNs. It should look something like this:

copyright page of Writing and Difference, by Jacques Derrida

Journals

For Journals, the table of contents is usually just inside the front cover of the journal. However, in some cases journals use the table of contents as the cover itself. A journal's table of contents will look similar to this:

table of contents of science fiction studies

The location of the copyright page in journals varies from publication to publication. Sometimes, the only copyright notice will be located on the cover of the journal, or the title page. In other cases there will be a separate copyright page immediately after the title page. Some journals (like Science Fiction Studies, in the example above) combine their front cover, copyright information, and table of contents into a single page. If the journal you are using has its own copyright page, it will probably look something like this:

copyright/information page for the Journal of Modern History

Other Materials

If you are submitting items which do not seem to have titles pages or copyright information pages, 'new media' items, or other unusual things, include the closest things you can find in your submission and leave a note in the 'comments' section. If you cannot find anything at all, please mention that in the 'comments' section instead and eReserves staff will try as well.
