Electronic Resource Copyright and Access Requests
Electronic resources can be directly uploaded into your Canvas Course shell after copyright permission from the publisher has been granted. Fill out this form to request copyright permission and scanning of books or articles to make upload easier. Copyright guidelines, for the most part, are applicable to digital material as well as the “traditional” forms of material.
BUT WHAT ABOUT FAIRUSE? I can just use the article I want under fair use, correct? Section 107 of the Copyright Code allows for use of copyrighted material for classroom use. The section lists four factors to be considered together in order to determine if the intended use is compliant to the Fair Use Doctrine:
- The purpose and character of the use;
- The nature of the copyrighted work;
- The amount of the work to be used;
- The effect of the use on the potential market for the work.
→ It is the responsibility of the faculty member wishing to use the work to determine if the use falls within the four factors.
