LIBRARY INSTRUCTION: If you'd like to schedule an online library instruction session for your students, visit our Instruction & Workshops page.
COURSE MATERIALS and RESERVES:
Consider using any number of Open Educational Resources (OER) in designing your remote-only instruction.
"It is evident that making materials available and accessible to students in this time of crisis will almost always be a fair use. As long as we are being thoughtful in our analysis and limiting our activities to the specific needs of our patrons during this time of crisis, copyright law supports our uses. The fair use doctrine accommodates the flexibility required by our shared public health crisis, enabling society to function and progress while protecting human life and safety."
While copyright restrictions have been different for in-person vs online teaching, during this Coronavirus pandemic, most of the legal issues are the same in both contexts. If it was okay to do in class, it is often okay to do online, especially when your online access is limited to the same enrolled students.
