Repertoire and Exclusions List for universities

The Copibec repertoire (or catalogue) contains millions of publications. As long as you stay within the limits of your university reproduction rights licence, you can use all that content to create coursepacks, share excerpts on secure learning management systems or display documents in class.

Content excluded from the repertoire

Millions of titles published in 33 countries are listed in the Copibec repertoire. However, certain titles and content categories are excluded. Be sure to confirm that the content you want to use is covered by your reproduction rights licence. To check your content, simply refer to the Exclusions List showing titles, publishers and content categories excluded from our repertoire. If a title or publisher appears on the Exclusions List, you’ll need to get permission from the publisher before using that content.

What if the title you want to use DOESN’T appear on the Exclusions List? Great! You can use it according to the terms of your licence.

Content categories excluded from the repertoire

The Copibec repertoire includes books, newspapers, magazines and other content. However, some categories of content are excluded from the repertoire. The excluded categories are indicated on the first page of the Exclusions List.

You have access to content published in Quebec, the rest of Canada and in 33 countries around the world. All the countries that Copibec has an agreement with are shown at the beginning of the Exclusions List.
