Requests for single copies of articles from journals can also be made to
the National Library online, via the Copies Direct service at . You will find a request
form as well as information about costs, copyright and so on at the
Copies Direct site.
The usual cost of a copy of an article is $13.20
Most state libraries also hold journals such as Emu, but you will need
to check their websites to see if you can make online requests for
The Libraries Australia service ( )
is a public database which also allows you to search the national
database to discover which libraries hold a journal - Emu is held by 55
of the around 800 contributing libraries. (note: not many public
libraries have their records in the database yet, but most university,
CSIRO and other large libraries are included)

Subject: Copyright Materials & Emu

Would all readers of Birding-Aus please remember that It is a breach of
copyright to distribute any publication without the approval of its
publisher or author, or in some cases both.  Scanning, photocopying,
faxing and distributing articles by other means - even typing them into
a Word document first - can all be breaches of copyright. Academic
journals are particularly susceptible, due to their high cost of
production and limited subscription base.  Please abide by these laws
and do not distribute, or request copyright materials via birding-aus.
If you wish to obtain copies of articles, particularly those published
by Birds Australia, please contact that organisation or CSIRO

I pass on the following information, sent to me earlier today by Andrew
Stammer form CSIRO Publishing:

> it has come to our attention that the BirdingAus listserver has
> carried correspondence requesting supply of PDFs of papers from Emu
> ... We must advise you that to provide the PDFs is against the terms
> and conditions under which the papers are available to readers either
> through their institutional subscription or through any personal
> subscription through Birds Australia. Specifically, individuals do not

> have permission to pass on this content.
> All the content of Emu is copyright Birds Australia. Under the
> contract to publish the Journal CSIRO PUBLISHING looks after
> permissions requests and copyright issues. The journal is sustained by

> selling its content. Without sales revenue Emu would cease. It does
> nothing to support the journal by giving away the content ...
> We would be happy for you to encourage people needing access to the
> papers to contact CSIRO PUBLISHING directly.
