PERMISSION FOR ONLINE READINGS 2020

 

Due to school, college, library, and bookstore closings, the General Books Group of HarperCollins Publishers has new policies in place to help educators, librarians, authors, and booksellers reach out to readers and students.

Terms for US only.

For information about new policies and resources from our Children's Division, please visit HarperAtHome.

The terms below are valid in the United States for books published by the General Books Group (adult trade books) of HarperCollins Publishers.

 

If you are an educator or librarian who would like to read a HarperCollins book online: We are granting permission to educators and librarians to read HarperCollins titles online, on video, through December 31, 2020.

These virtual readings may be streamed live via digital platforms, or if recorded, posted to closed educational platforms. If a closed platform is unavailable, recorded videos of readings may be uploaded to YouTube as long as they are marked “Unlisted.” We ask that any educators or librarians performing or posting readings please do the following, as conditions of this grant of permission:

  1. At the beginning of the reading, state it is “with permission of HarperCollins Publishers.”
  2. Send their name, school or library, city and state, and the title and author/illustrator of the book they intend to read online to [email protected].
  3. Tag @HarperCollins in social media posts connected with their reading.
  4. Delete uploaded videos or, in the event the applicable platform does not permit deletion, disable access to uploaded videos by December 31, 2020.

This permission grant is to best serve the community of readers out there who need us right now.
