NUS Libraries does not permit placing more than a "reasonable portion" of a work on e-Reserves. 

The author of a work might not own the copyright which subsists within a work because:-

  • the author might have assigned the copyright in the work to the publisher when he published the book and would not be able to give permission;
  • under copyright law, the publisher and not the author has the exclusive right to make a reproduction of a published edition.
