In using copyrighted material, fair use may apply. To learn more about fair use, see the links below. If your use does not meet the requirements to be a fair use, then permission or licensing must be sought.
If you are creating Open Educational Resources and need help, your library liaison may be able to point you in the right direction or check out these other FAQs. You can also find librarian contact information through the library staff directory.
When protecting your work, it is important to understand the licensing options available. A Creative Commons (CC) license is recommended for created OER materials. To learn more about the types of CC licenses available, please see this page.
If you are wanting to reuse materials already published and available to the public, there are many things to consider, such as how much you will be reusing, where/how you will be republishing the content, and what kind of license may or may not be attached to the work. Sometimes simply linking to open content is acceptable if you don't need to remix it or publish it in a new format. However, if you do need to copy or change the material, it is important to follow copyright law and/or the creative commons licensing associated with the work. To learn more please see the links below.
