Ursuline College Copyright Policy

For Administrators, Faculty, and Staff
Electronic Media Restrictions

Copyright restrictions and the “fair use” requirements apply to electronic media as well.

Accordingly, anyone may read or view publicly marketed copyrighted electronic material privately, on site or remotely; make or have made a first-generation copy for personal use of an article or other small part of a publicly marketed copyrighted work or a work in a library’s collection for study, scholarship or research; and make copies of copyrighted material for a lawful use if only retained temporarily.

However, copyrighted material obtained through electronic media may not be copied and retained without permission of the copyright owner or without complying with the “fair use” requirements.
