If your course readings are from licensed library databases, you can eliminate the need for permission or fee by simply providing your students a link to the work instead of making a copy of the work and posting it to Blackboard or other website. The Library licensed databases have the functionality of creating a permanent link to specific licensed content that can be used in Leaning Management Systems such as Blackboard.
*WARNING*--simple bookmarks or just copying url's from the top address bar of library database web pages does *not* usually work for links. Usually these contain temporary data like session keys that will not work after a few minutes.
In order to create a persistent link, look for options like “Permalink”, "Embed", "Bookmark" (ok if an actual database option shown), or "Share". These options will provide a persistent link that can be copied. However, steps to locate a persistent link will vary depending on the database that the article is in.
