Q. Who is responsible for copyright permissions?
You are. The forms for requesting permission are available from the Mailroom and from the Dean's Administrative Secretary. The permission must be obtained before duplicating can make copies of the material. Please plan ahead. If you need additional help regarding out of print books or publisher information, please contact the Director of the Ohlone College Bookstore.
