No. When you create a link to original content you are not making a copy.
Remember: material on the internet is subject to copyright. Fair Dealing and some internet exceptions apply, but be sure the internet source is, itself, a legitimate site, and any items distributed on it are done so legally, to the best of your knowledge. Do not subvert technological protection measures or use material with an explicit prohibition against use for educational purposes. Always credit the original source.
“YouTube” is a viable option provided the work is a legal copy, posted by consent of the copyright owner. You must identify the source of the work, if available the author, performer, maker or broadcaster of the work.
The Mashup Rule: “Non-Commercial User Generated Content” allows the incorporation of YouTube works for non-commercial purposes in the creation of new original works so long as the author is cited, the material used is itself non-infringing, and use does not have a substantial, adverse effect either morally or economically on the owner of such borrowed material.
Yes. But. Coursepacks do NOT fall within Fair Dealing guidelines. Copyright holders must give permission in writing, for use, and/or be compensated. The library will do this for you; however, this must be done in advance of the coursepack being produced and circulated.
Required and supplementary texts can still be placed on closed reserve; however, copies of items are still subject to copyright and fair dealing guidelines, and the library will check if they comply.
Fair Dealing also applies to licensed materials. The one article per journal issue rule still applies; however, each of our licenses have their own terms that may allow you further access. Please contact the library for futher details.
Maybe. Many of AUArts' licensing agreements permit authorized users (students, faculty, staff) to access full-text articles through Library eResources. An authorized user can email articles to other authorized users only; however, we recommend you send links only so that the other user must authenticate to access the article.
