Copyright Compliance & Resource Sharing
Information about copyright compliance and resource sharing for teaching staff
Linking to the Library
Access databases via the ACAP library and copy item links into the class space.
Linking to Library Resources
Link directly to digital library resources by copying and pasting URLs, permalinks or DOIs which have EzProxy authentication included within the address or add the EzProxy authentication URL component.
For copyright compliance, articles and chapters not available from the library must be linked via FLEX.
FLEX & Copyright Compliance
Some resources are not available through the library or in open, copyright compliant formats on the Web. Such resources may include articles, chapters, conference papers, theses, images, or audiovisual content.
Rather than uploading PDFs or other files directly into the class space, the library uses FLEX to store and share reading materials to students via secure digital links.
Any content communicated to students has specific copyright requirements. To ensure that copyright compliant copies are uploaded via FLEX to the class space, contact the library at email@example.com.
The World Wide Web
Consider quality, access, and copyright when linking to resources on the World Wide Web.
Linking to the Web
Provide direct links to resources where possible. Do not save and upload files from the Web directly to the class space. If access is blocked by a paywall, additional login requirements, or time limits, contact the library for assistance: firstname.lastname@example.org
Check the availability of library resources. Library resources can provide more stable links, better accessibility and ensure copyright compliance.
