Q. May I distribute copies of journal articles or a book chapter to my students
- A single, print copy of a journal article or a book chapter may be distributed to each student in a face to face class environment for one semester. Subsequent copying for another class or another semester requires permission from the copyright holder.
Electronic Access including Blackboard:
- A digitized copy of a single journal article or a single book chapter may be posted on a secure website such as Blackboard for one semester or a single class. Access to the article is limited to students enrolled in the course. Subsequent copying for another class or another semester requires permission from the copyright holder. If the Library subscribes to the online journal you may provide a persistent link to the article.
- Sending a PDF of journal articles to students via email is discouraged. It is too easy for students to forward the article to unauthorized users thereby compromising the license agreement with the publisher of the journal.
