Fair Use Distribution                                 

You can apply Fair Use to your distribution of copyrighted works if you:

In a classroom setting, you can make one copy for each of your students and handout the materials provided you charge the students no more than the cost of the duplication.

In a course management system such as Blackboard, you can make limited portions of copyrighted materials available to distance education students for downloading on a limited time basis as follows:

You will need permission to distribute the same materials in the same course in subsequent semesters.

You may allow your students to view materials as they do in the classroom for subsequent semesters if you block the students' ability to print or download the material after the first semester. Both Blackboard and Library eReserves can block printing and downloading of materials while allowing the materials to be viewed.
