Copyright & Fair Use For Faculty

About

This guide provides a basic introduction to the concepts of copyright and fair use. 

Faculty and students should consider the rights of others when using material in their courses. They should also consider their responsibilities when deciding to use that material in various educational contexts.

The University Libraries and Archives makes every effort to provide accurate information.  It is not meant to be a substitute for legal advice, but a prompt to ask questions about how to ethically use material in classes. If you are in a rights dispute or have a question about whether your intended use is legal, please consult a lawyer.
