Copyright and Fair Use Guidelines at UTSA
Copyright in Online UTSA Courses
UTSA has added the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) annual license to the web of rights used to manage copyright infringement risk. This license permits UTSA to use certain text-based materials, such as single book chapters and journal articles, in online courses. Ask your librarian for details.
Additional information about streaming video and streaming audio is available in the Streaming Media research guide.
Learn more about scanning print materials for your classes through the UTSA Libraries E-Reserve service.

Public domain refers to creative works that are not protected by any type of intellectual property law, including copyright. These could be works whose copyright has expired or that never had copyright protection to begin with.
