Information to guide faculty in decisions about using copyright-protected resources in courses, whether online or residential, is located in the Copyright Toolkit (screenshot of homepage below).

Content included in the Copyright Toolkit:

    • Scenarios based upon frequently asked copyright questions from Faculty
    • Recommended Library databases to use in place of copyright-protected resources
    • Open access resources/sites
    • Flowcharts to provide a visual understanding of how to determine use for each type of resource
    • Sites for purchasing licenses or access
    • Link to the Copyright Permission Request Form
  • Information on Fair Use
  • Information on Copyright Law
  • Creative Commons information
  • Copyright Permission Request Form and "Library" to store permissions received/granted

Contact with additional questions about the Toolkit.

Contact if you have reviewed the content in the Faculty Copyright Toolkit, but still have a  question about the use of a specific resource in your course.
