When to seek permission...
Or basically any time you plan to distribute copyrighted works!
A key to Fair Use is Spontaneity. If there is reasonable time to seek permission, you are required to do so!
Three steps to securing permission:
What if permission is denied?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org. The Library may be able to provide access to the work you're seeking through a course reserve.
An important part of avoiding copyright infringement in your online courses is sending students through Library databases for access to articles, ebooks, and videos.
To do this in Blackboard, follow the steps below to embed links in your distance ed courses.
Select "Web Link" from the drop-down menu. Paste in your EZproxy link in the "URL" blank (boxed in red below) and add a name for the link. Add a description if you wish, change any of the options, and click "Submit." Be sure to test the link from home to make sure that it works off campus!
To ensure your students can access a library resource on and off campus, you need to use a link that includes EZproxy. EZproxy authenticates our users, allowing on campus access and prompting off campus users to log in. An EZproxy link looks like this:
Don't copy and paste the URL you see in your browser's search bar! This URL will not link students through our proxy and thus will not let them access the resource.
Instead, look for the permalink. This will ensure the link does not break after you finish your search session, and that students who use the link are routed through our EZ Proxy.
The Library provides access to streaming videos through Films on Demand.
To embed a video from this resource into your Blackboard course, use the Record URL located under the video you would like to use.
