Applying "Fair Use" guidelines allows you to scan a book chapter, selected pages from a book, or a single journal article from an issue for a class.  However, it is important to follow the recommended guidelines below:

  • The purpose is for educational use (teaching)
  • Material scanned is published and relevant to the course
  • Less is best.  Copying only 10% or a single chapter of a book or a single article from a journal issue is a good rule of thumb. 
  • Attach a copyright cover sheet to the scanned document
  • Place the scanned document on Canvas so only students taking the course have access to the reading
  • Remove the scanned document at the end of the course
