I have questions about copyright and fair use. 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.

For answers to questions about copyright and for guidance on ways to provide or use resources responsibly, contact our Scholarly Communications Librarian,  Jodi Carlson Grebinoski,, 218-726-7880.
