Images & Multimedia
- Photocopying. The four-factor test should be applied to determine fair use of images. The guidelines for copying for classroom use (Attachment 7 - Guidelines for Use of Copyrighted Materials) include references to images.
- Slides. Purchase slides when possible and do not make duplicates. When making slides for use in the classroom because they are not available for sale, make only one copy of a picture, and do not make copies of every picture in a book. Do not digitize slides.
- Clip Art. Read the license before using clip art and abide by any restrictions, such as "do not digitize."
- Copyright Notice. Always include copyright information with each image used.
Students and faculty can incorporate portions of lawfully acquired copyrighted works into their projects so long as a student’s project is for a specific course and a teacher’s project will be a teaching tool in support of curriculum-based instructional activities. Fair Use Guidelines for Educational Multimedia are included in Attachment 7 - Guidelines for Use of Copyrighted Materials.
