I have questions about copyright. I was wondering if I can use a specific image, text, or video under fair use for educational purposes.


As an introduction to determining copyright protections and fair use, see the University of Minnesota Libraries Copyright Information & Resources page or the UMD Scholarly Communications page.

Additionally, UMD librarians can answer questions about copyright and offer guidance on ways to provide or use resources responsibly. Our Scholarly Communications Librarian is Jodi Carlson Grebinoski,, 218-726-7880.
