Copyright Advice

Susan Kendall, Copyright Librarian, cannot give legal advice, but she can provide guidance and help you understand if you need to seek out permissions for your use of materials.

She may be able to guide you to alternatives that will not require you to seek for or pay for permissions, such as:

  • Using library-licensed resources for which the Library has negotiated special use rights
  • Choosing resources that have more favorable use policies
