About this Guide

This guide provides links to and information about content that you can access and use in a blended learning class.  While you should be aware of possible copyright restrictions when placing content online, you have many options for safely and legally adding content to your classes.  These include:

  • Linking to the Smith licensed content.  Placing a link within your course to any of the library's licensed articles, ebooks or other reference materials is a way to avoid any copyright restrictions by ensuring that only members of the Smith community can access resources licensed by the library for their use. 
  • Using openly available material such as books in the public domain, Creative Commons-licensed content and open access content, all of which are freely available to anyone worldwide.
  • Requesting scanning and delivery through the library's electronic reserves system, which follows certain guidelines to comply with the college's copyright policy.

If you wish to use content that does not fall into any of these categories, you may be able to use it under the fair use provision of U.S. Copyright Law
