Copyright assistance at KU

KU Libraries’ Shulenburger Office of Scholarly Communication & Copyright is happy to assist KU faculty, staff, and students with questions concerning copyright and fair use of copyrighted materials, in consultation with the KU Office of the General Counsel as needed.  For assistance, please see the Copyright Decision Tree, below, as well as the Copyright Resources tab of this guide, or contact us at copyright@ku.edu.
