There is a wide range of material that you may provide to your students. You are encouraged to make use of materials not protected by copyright – see Alternatives to copyright – and your own unpublished materials, for which you do not require any permissions. Alternatively, you should make use of any applicable Exceptions to copyright.
Note: if you are unsure as to what you are permitted to do with a work, remember that emailing your students a link, which directs them to the material in question, is always permitted! For more information on creating persistent links, see Linking to full-text articles and e-books.
For dealings that extend beyond the Exceptions to copyright, take the following steps to obtain permission for use:
Make sure only to consider materials which are likely protected by copyright – see Alternatives to copyright.
For any materials obtained in electronic format from the Library catalogue, check to ensure that the University’s licence does not prohibit the intended use – see Using electronic resources.
Once approved you may use your materials in the classroom.
