In the academic environment, copyright issues can be very complicated. Do you know how to share videos, readings, or images without violating copyright?

The Copyright Center Libguide provides plenty of resources to help you make sense of various copyright concepts, including fair use, obtaining permission, and properly giving credit. You can work through the Copyright Flowchart to figure out how to use and share copyrighted material without violating the copyrights. If you are looking for a variety of general resources about copyright in different contexts, check out our links in the “Copyright Links” tab. This Libguide also contains the relevant University and Library policies concerning copyright. Increase your copyright savvy by using the tutorials gathered under the “Interactive Tools” tab. The Copyright Center provides an “Images” tab to show you collections of images that are freely accessible to our library users. Once you have explored the Copyright Center’s resources, try the questions under the “Copyright Quiz” tab
to see how much you have learned.

You can find the Copyright Center via the Bellevue University Library website. On our home page at library.bellevue.edu, look under the “Services” dropdown menu for the link to the Copyright Center. You can also get to it through the “Subject, Course, and Research Guides” link under the “Find” drop-down menu of the library home page. This link will take you to a list of all the library’s guides.
