General Tips

  • Posting copyrighted materials to public servers is not permitted.
  • When in doubt, use excerpts of content and/or link to it. Always attribute ownership to the copyright owner.
  • If you leave the university and take your online course with you or sell it (e.g., to a textbook publisher), you should remove any licensed content.
  • There are many other options for academic and scholarly content, including works licensed under the Creative Commons, open access publications, out-of-copyright materials, U.S. Government publications, and orphan works.
