Welcome to Copyright LibGuide
Here you will find useful information pertaining to different aspects of copyright law and scenarios which you may encounter during your teaching and research activities.
Please be advised that this guide does not supply legal advice but rather access to copyright information and, in some cases, individual interpretations of fair use guidelines and other copyright considerations.
Copyright law is complex and multi-faceted, and there is rarely one answer which will apply to all scenarios. In many instances, well-informed people can come to different conclusions regarding uses and disagree on determinations.
The key to ensuring your own copyright compliance is to be as well-informed as possible, to always make a good faith effort to act within the guidelines, and to seek professional advice whenever necessary.
The library provides copyright information on the web to help the campus community make informed copyright decisions. This guide is created to serve as a clearinghouse of information for the library and other units on campus. Click on the appropriate tab above to get more information from that office regarding copyright.
In addition to maintaining the University's copyright web site, the copyright policies of University departments, and FAQs, the library will also research and attempt to provide answers to campus copyright questions. Send questions to the Director of Public Services, Mou Chakraborty, firstname.lastname@example.org.
