Help with Copyright and Fair Use

Cline Librarians can help you understand copyright issues as they pertain to your own research and publications, including:

  • Strategies for retaining copyright to your own works, rather than signing over those rights to your publisher. The SPARC addendum has been used widely by authors.
  • Understanding Creative Commons licensing option.
  • Making your publications freely accessible to other researchers, thus increasing the visibility and use of your work.

Contact Research Programs Librarian Brittany Blanchard or contact your subject librarian if you need help on copyright issues related to your research.

For help understanding what published materials you can use in your classroom or BBLearn, consult Course Reserves.
