Copyright & Fair Use

 

Print Books

  • U.S. Copyright law does not allow us to upload or embed PDF files from books into the course. 
  • Copyright law dictates that only 10% of a book can be copied. 
  • For print books, OCLS needs to have a copy of the book on our reserve bookshelf.  
  • Pages (10% of the book or less) are scanned and kept by OCLS.
  • Students will need to contact OCLS to request the pages. 

 

Library Resources

  • Articles available through OCLS databases are allowed to be directly permalinked in the course.
