5.2.2-8 May a university lecturer commission the university library to make copies of teaching material for his classes?


Yes, as long as he himself falls under private use for educational purposes (Art. 19 para. 1(b) CopA); in this case, he may use a third party, a library, to make the copies for him (Art. 19 para. 1(b) in conjunction with Art. 19 para. 2 CopA). However, it means that the library may only copy excerpts from the teaching material.
