If the status message “Awaiting Copyright Clearance” option appears on the Main Menu,
double click on it to bring up the “Process Copyright” screen. A list of pending
requests will appear on the screen. Click on the button “Auto Select No Problem Requests
” to have the system mark those requests which present no problems. The selected requests
will now have a check mark in the box on the left. View each of the selected requests to verify that
they are older than five years and are not covered by CONTU. If there are no problems with the selected
requests, click the “No Problem” button to move these requests along.
The remaining requests should be from journals within the last five years. View each request and select
those which will not require a copyright payment. The “Copyright List” on the right of
the screen shows a list of journals from which five or more articles have been borrowed which were less
than five years old during the current calendar year. Additional requests from these journals requires
a copyright royalty payment. If the request in the “Process Copyright” queue is from
a journal not in the “Copyright List”, select (place a check mark in the box to the
left) that request as falling within CONTU guidelines. Press the “No Problem”
The remaining requests require copyright payment. Select one of the requests by placing a check mark in
the box to the left. Click on the “CCC Home Page” button to access the Copyright Clearance Center.
Select the “Search” button and select “Title Catalog”. Select the
“Transactional Reporting Service (TRS)“ link and enter the “Publication Title
” in the “Search For” box. This should bring up copyright information about
the journal requested. Cut and Paste the relevant information (Base Fee, ISSN, and Per Page Fee, if any)
in the “Copyright Payment Information” section of the Illiad “Process Copyright
” page. Fill in the number of pages of the article in the # of Pages box. Click the “
Pay Copyright” button to attach the information to the request. Select the next request and
repeat the above process until all requests have been processed.
