Fully exercise the right of fair use to make as much course material as possible digitally available to students via course-management or library systems.

Help from your Subject Specialist Librarian

Your subject specialist librarian can help:

  • Identify appropriate ebooks already available in the library's collection and use them as course textbooks.
  • Check licensing for library-owned eBooks. Many of our books are only licensed to be used by one person at a time. Contact your librarian to see if alternative licenses are availalble.
  • Check expiry dates for streaming video.
