Welcome to the University of Kentucky Copyright Resource Center

The University of Kentucky is committed to working collaboratively to make proper use of copyrighted materials in the educational setting while respecting the legal rights of copyright holders. During this era of expanding online courses and programs, changing copyright laws, and varying media licensing options and policies; the use of copyrighted content within university courses grows increasingly complex. To that end, this website is intended to assist faculty members in the correct use of copyrighted materials in both their online and face-to-face courses. Here, faculty members will find information and resources to help them understand copyright laws and apply them to the use of copyrighted materials within their courses, as well as connect them with campus-wide specialists.

This website will be updated as needed in order to provide faculty members with current copyright information and resources related to use in their courses. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.
