CIIS Electronic Reserves - through SIPX

There are many different online course reserves systems.  CIIS suggests Linking to CIIS owned material when possible.  When we do not have access to an online copy of a book chapter or an article, we can consider utilizing SIPX.  In SIPX, CIIS licensed materials are automatically linked and not charged for,  materials not owned by CIIS can be made available to students for download when copyright and hosting fees are paid by the individual student via paypal. 

The SIPX online reader has the advantage of only charging costs for materials not subscribed to, whereas a traditional print reader must charge copyright and reproduction costs on all material in the reader.

This system was invented at Stanford and is now owned by Bowker/ ProQuest umbrella. 

The Stanford Intellectual Property Exchange (a.k.a SIPX) started as a research project to focus on providing scalable technology solutions to the challenges inherent in providing online readings.

A protype was launched  at Stanford in April 2011, and to meet growing interest from other academic institutions to use this technology, SIPX spun out as an independent company in September 2012 led by serial entrepreneur Bob Weinschenk as the first CEO. Together with founder Franny Lee, they assembled the core SIPX team that exists today and secured the early investors that allowed SIPX to go to market.
