Copyright & Scholarly Communication Introduction for New Faculty
The Copyright & Scholarly Communication department provides copyright guidance to faculty and supports all aspects of your scholarly publishing—from selecting a publisher to promoting and preserving your work.
Copyright law is complex and determining what is or is not permissible can be complicated. If you have questions about your rights and responsibilities as a creator or user of copyrighted materials, the Library has resources available to assist you as you navigate through questions of fair use, permissions, retaining rights to your work, and many other aspects of copyright law. Visit our Copyright homepage for information on topics including Copyright and Teaching, Using Images, Authors’ Rights, and Fair Use.
