When choosing resources for an online course that you are designing or teaching, you will need to comply with copyright regulations.
See the boxes below for details and contact the librarian with any questions.
Fair Use allows the use of copyright-protected works without permission in some circumstances.
Section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Act helps determine Fair Use. Educational uses may be included in Fair Use but there are limits, including on the amount of a work that may be used.
If Adler doesn't own a resource that you want to include, see the information on the Copyright Clearance Center before considering Fair Use.
