The following areas are under the Campus Services Department:
As part of the Division of Administrative Services, Custodial Services is committed to providing an atmosphere that allows students, faculty and staff at Miami Dade College's Wolfson Campus to meet their goals.
The Duplicating Center provides services for the Wolfson Campus Administrators, Faculty and Staff by reproducing classroom handouts, tests, flyers, memos and other documents required by the campus. All requests are done on 8.5x11 or 8.5x14, 20 lb. paper; the requester can supply special stocks. Some of our services include: color copies, while-you-wait copies, and tape binding. See our new Duplicating Guidelines for more details. All test and classroom handouts have priorities. All copyrighted materials must follow the copyright guidelines.
* PLEASE SEE YOUR DEPARTMENT HEAD FOR AUTHORIZATION NEEDS. THE DEPARTMENTS LISTED BELOW REQUIRE THE SIGNATURE OF THE DEPARTMENT HEAD FOR ANY COPIES MADE (THIS INCLUDES EXAMS):
The guidelines permit a teacher to make one copy of any of the following: a chapter from a book; an article from a periodical or newspaper; a short story, short essay or short poem; a chart, graph, diagram, drawing, cartoon or picture from a book, periodical or newspaper.
Teachers may photocopy articles to hand out in class, but the guidelines impose restrictions. Classroom copying cannot be used to replace texts or workbooks used in the classroom. Pupils cannot be charged more than the actual cost of photocopying. The number of copies cannot exceed more than one copy per pupil. And a notice of copyright must be affixed to each copy.
Examples of what can be copied and distributed in class include:
Not more than one short poem, article, story, essay or two excerpts may be copied from the same author, nor more than three from the same collective work or periodical volume (for example, a magazine or newspaper) during one class term. As a general rule, a teacher has more freedom to copy from newspapers or other periodicals if the copying is related to current events.
The idea to make the copies must come from the teacher, not from school administrators or other higher authority. Only nine instances of such copying for one course during one school term are permitted. In addition, the idea to make copies and their actual classroom use must be so close together in time that it would be unreasonable to expect a timely reply to a permission request. For example, the instructor finds a newsweekly article on capital punishment two days before presenting a lecture on the subject.
Teachers MAY NOT photocopy workbooks, texts, standardized tests or other materials that were created for educational use. The guidelines were not intended to allow teachers to usurp the profits of educational publishers. In other words, educational publishers do not consider it a fair use if the copying provides replacements or substitutes for the purchase of books, reprints, periodicals, tests, workbooks, anthologies, compilations or collective works.
