FTCC Copyright Compliance Center!

Guides to copyright policy and training resources for faculty, staff, and students.


Copyright is a very complex topic, and this document is only intended as an introduction to the use of copyrighted information in educational settings. As you read, you will probably develop more questions than are answered. Do not be concerned; experts in the field do not agree on every aspect. While this manual only skims the surface, it will get you started asking the right questions about your educational use of copyrighted material. Any questions regarding copyright compliance as it relates to educational uses of information at FTCC can be referred to the Director of Library Services / Copyright Compliance Officer.
