LBIS is currently reviewing our copyright policies for course reserves, given the increased demand for digital services and the complexity of the relevant copyright laws.  The information listed here is provided as a guide for determining copyright compliance of course items, but will not apply to all cases or uses. 

It is important to note that scanning digital materials is subject to the same laws and guidelines as copying print materials, and that re-posting items found freely on the Internet may still constitute copyright infringement.  Please contact Joan Nielson,, or Jennifer Beck,, for assistance with copyright clearance if you are using digital materials in your course pages. Please note if you post resources, you are responsible for following copyright law.  The following Libguide is an excellent resource for copyright compliance and open access policies.
