Copyright Consultation for Faculty

The Library seeks to provide students and faculty with access to published works and course related materials for the purposes of education and research. While it is the library’s obligation to promote the open exchange of ideas crucial to the education of our students, it is also the library’s obligation to adhere to existing copyright law and to that end, we will work with faculty to assure that published materials whether placed in Digital Commons (our institutional repository), provided through our open access service, or placed on traditional or electronic reserves complies with the terms under the copyright laws.
