College of Medicine Faculty Support: Copyright

This guide is intended to assist all CMED faculty members with utilizing Library resources and services, including meeting your instructional, clinical, and research needs.

Copyright Shortcut: Linking to Resources

CMED Faculty are encouraged to link to resources whenever possible. When linking to a site, all questions of copyright are avoided because content is not being reproduced or appropriated in any way; a faculty member is simply directing a student to the site where the content can be found. By contrast, posting PDFs or copies of an object may require permissions and payment of usage fees under copyright law, especially when the use recurs from semester to semester. If you have any questions, please contact the library's Course Reserves and Copyright Office.

To link electronic reserves (articles, book chapters, etc.) online, use the proxy header in front of your link:​
