Technology for instruction, like blogs, wikis, Web pages, and Blackboard are ripe for posting/distributing content. But we can get into real trouble if we–faculty and students both–don’t pay attention to copyright.
The Association of Research Libraries has easy-to-follow information about your rights, and you don’t have to be a lawyer to understand them.
The FAQ for Faculty & Teaching Assistants supplements these documents, but you can always discuss your concerns with one of our librarians. It’s better to find out what’s appropriate before violating the law.
We want you to take advantage of all the publishing tools that enrich teaching and learning today, and you can if you evaluate your resources, first.
