Copyright and Fair Use


The following text has been shared with faculty via our LibGuide for Online Teaching and Learning:

Classes at Touro and beyond are moving online quickly in light of developing health concerns.

When shifting your class from in-person to online, copyright needs to be considered — but the good news is that most of the rules that apply to in-person teaching at Touro also apply online. Some quick tips:

  • When showing videos in class, try to limit yourself to brief clips and encourage students to access longer videos outside of class through the library or other legal source.
  • Control access to your online documents by using Canvas instead of emailing students. If you need to share resources outside of Canvas, link to the original source, rather than making a copy or attaching a document.
  • If you are unsure whether your use is a legal one, ask the Libraries for help!
