To find out if you can make copies of articles available on the LMS, check the section titled E-Reserves/LMS. If it states “electronic links only” this means that you can only link to articles. If it states “Yes: reasonable portion” this means that you can make articles available. However, the definition of reasonable portion varies from journal to journal. We recommend that 1 journal article from a journal issue or 2 or more articles on the same topic would most likely be considered a reasonable portion.
