Copyright Resource Guide

A useful guide to copywrite.

Use Course Readings Lists to Stay Copyright Compliant!

Course Reading Lists (formerly Leganto) is a service the Library offers that enables you to easily create, maintain, evaluate, and share reading lists used by your courses. Reading lists can be added to Brightspace D2L or Canvas courses, or you can get a direct link to your list that can be added to your syllabus Through this tool, the Library can license content for your students, so that your course materials are in compliance with copyright.

For more information, see the Reading Lists Guide for Faculty.

For assistance, contact your subject librarian.

Classroom Exemption

Multimedia in the Classroom - the TEACH (Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization) Act

Any time a performance (music, movies, etc.) or display (image, text, etc.) is transmitted (cable television, over the web), the TEACH exception might be an option for your class.

Best Practices for Copyright

Guidelines and best practices are helpful, but it is important to remember that they are not legal advice. Even if your use does not fit these guidelines, it is possible that it falls under fair use.
