Many faculty, staff, and students have questions related to copyright, fair use, and intellectual property. The issue of copyright can be downright confusing. It is our hope that the resources in this guide help to clarify the concept of copyrights and permissions, and answer the questions surrounding what you can and cannot post, distribute, and copy — especially in academia.

The Association of Research Libraries has assembled a simple brochure to help you determine how best to share articles, multimedia, and other intellectual property with your students -- often without requesting special permission or paying fees to content owners.
