Lecture Notes

Compiled from college newspapers

LOS ANGELES--Students at the University of Southern California (USC) are able to buy lecture notes for some of the university's large general education courses.

For the fourth consecutive year, two graduates of the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) are offering the note-taking service, which now covers ten courses.

The service "helped me when I was at UCLA, so I thought it would be a great thing for USC as well," Janice Galletly, one of the students offering the service, said.

After the university approved the plan, Galletly and her partner Kim Siehl sent letters to all professors teaching classes with more than 100 students. The professors' approval is required since they own the copyrights to their lectures.


Galletly said most of the professors who have participated in the service have been very pleased, adding that each teacher receives a bound copy of the notes at the end of the semester. She said there has been some negative reaction from teachers who publish their own class notes.

Siehl said they prefer to hire graduate students who are well acquainted with the courses offered.
