Myths About Online Course Materials
Myth: Library materials are free.
Truth: Tuition, taxes, and other sources of funding are put toward the access of materials through the library. The library provides access to the temporary use of materials in the library whether physical or digital.
Myth: I have a PDF of an article which means I own the rights to share the article.
Myth: I own a copy of the book which means I have the right to share a chapter of the book, so my students don't have to buy it
Truth: The copyright owner still owns the content. To figure whether or not you can share it, use the fair use interactive tool.
