In addition to the other resources in this Guide for users of copyrighted materials when creating scholarly works, there are special resources to assist those using copyrighted materials in their teaching.
We suggest you start with the following. A more extensive list of resources can be found at the bottom of the page.
- Know Your Copyrights chart: Using Copyrighted Materials for Teaching: The Association of Research Libraries has created a guide for faculty and other instructors that shows how to use public domain and copyrighted materials in various instructional scenarios.
- Copyright Tools: The American Library Association has created a website for easy access to five copyright resources.
- Copyright Decision Tree (KU): This copyright decision tree, in the form of an interactive slide show, is designed to help users decide whether they are using copyrighted materials in compliance with U.S. copyright law and/or fair use.
- Copyright & Online Courses Presentation (KU): The KU ScholarWorks record linked here contains the slides and the video recording from the presentation by Rachel Rolf, Associate Counsel, Office of the General Counsel and Marianne Reed, KU Libraries' KU Libraries' Shulenburger Office of Scholarly Communication & Copyright.
