Copyright Questions?

Posted by UCSB Libraries on February 22, 2007

Copyright tips are available from the Association of Research Libraries.

Know Your Copy Rights—What You Can Do, a 2007 brochure aimed at faculty and teaching assistants.

Among the topics covered in the brochure are: fair use, the advantage of linking to instead of copying works, and special provisions for displaying or performing works in classes. The brochure also includes a one-page chart that highlights 24 situations when various categories of works can be used.

Using Copyrighted Works in Your Teaching—FAQ: Questions Faculty and Teaching Assistants Need to Ask Themselves Frequently, by Peggy Hoon, 2007.

This FAQ complements the brochure and presents a sequence of five overarching questions that faculty members should ask themselves when considering using a copyrighted work in their teaching. The FAQ consists of two sections, each addressing the different circumstances for the traditional face-to-face classroom or online courses.
