Copyright & Fair Use: For faculty


As a faculty member, you need to be mindful of staying on the right side of copyright law when it comes to your pedagogy and how you disseminate learning materials to your students.  A common misconception that educators have is that as long as they're operating under educational intentions, they are free to reproduce and distribute copyrighted material to their students.  This is not the case, and we encourage you to refer back to the "Copyright Basics" page for a refresher, and to read through the "Course Reserve," "Interlibrary Loan," and "FAQ" pages for more clarity.  Any copyright inquiries may be directed to Lindsey Gumb, Instructional Technology Librarian.
