Copyright for Faculty

Copyright during the coronavirus outbreak - Legal Stratagies

Linking to library content

ALWAYS place a link in Canvas to the materials you want your class to read / watch / listen. Don't copy, except as a last resort.

  • We may own it already - The library has a half millions eBooks, 50,000 eJournals, 270,000 streaming videos, and a million audio recordings
  • We may be able to obtain it. Most content can be made available in 48 hours.

When there is no digital option

  • If you or the library own a physical book and there is no digital book available, you may legally scan 1 chapter or 10% of the book, and post to Canvas.
  • If you need 3 or 4 chapters uploaded, contact the library. We might be able to buy multiple copies of the book, thus allowing a chapter from each.
  • Consider a substitute or cobbling together the information you need from multiple sources.
  • FYI - Due to the danger of the coronavirus, library's are not using Interlibrary Loan for physical items anymore.
