About Course Pack Publishing

What Should Be in a Course Pack? Creating a course pack is a wide open proposition giving you the flexibility to tailor an anthology which contains the material you wish to teach, unconstrained by the limits of a textbook. Your chosen combination of materials can help foster a unique learning experience for your students. With a customized course pack you can think outside the box. If you have materials you wish to include that are not included in the following list, please give us a call, and we’ll work together to help make it happen!

You may wish to include:

  • Your original material
  • Lab exercises
  • Problem sets
  • Class notes and handouts
  • Course syllabi
  • Study guides and old tests
  • Works in the public domain, such as governmental publications, and works with expired copyrights

And the following items, which are usually copyrighted*:

  • Journal, magazine, or newspaper articles
  • Excerpts from traditional textbooks
  • Chapters from a novel, anthology or poetry collection
  • Out-of-print texts
  • Diagrams and maps
  • Transparencies
  • Case Studies

*Written permission from the rights holder must be obtained for every copyrighted work each semester. While most copyright clearances are approved within 24 to 48 hours please know that this process can take much longer depending on the publisher. Plan accordingly to help us meet our joint goal of having your course pack on the shelf by the first day of class.
