The Libraries offer ways to enhance online learning:
Our research and instruction librarians are ready to assist with materials and instruction for your courses! Contact us directly or Ask Us!
In anticipation of possible absences, please use our general email if you do not hear back from your liaison librarian within a business day.
The library provides online access to numerous online resources, including electronic books (ebooks), newspaper and journal articles, and streaming films. You can search our collections for works to use as part of online instruction. If you or your students need assistance locating online materials, we invite you to contact your subject specialist or request reference assistance via chat, email, or phone.
OA works are articles, books, films, lecture recordings and other learning materials that are digital, online, free of charge, and free of most copyright and licensing restrictions. There are a variety of OA repositories you and your students can use to find resources that can be used for instruction and the creation of new scholarship. They include the Directory of Open Access Journals and OASIS (Openly Available Sources Integrated Search) a search tool developed by SUNY’s Geneseo's Milne Library that aims to make the discovery of open content easier. OASIS currently searches open content from 97 different sources and contains over 385,000 records.
You can also provide students with links to resources made freely and legally available online. This could include linking to news stories, reports, data sets, etc.
The fair use exception found in Section 107 of U.S. copyright law provides options for making copies of works available for students as part of the educational process. You can learn more about fair use and the four factors involved with making fair use determinations here. Have questions about copyright? Contact MU’s copyright librarian, Carla Myers, at email@example.com or 513-529-3935.
Works in the public domain are free of copyright protection this includes works whose term of copyright protection has expired and work prepared by an officer or employee of the United States Government as part of that person’s official duties (e.g., reports, photographs, and other resources produced by the CDC, NIH, NASA, etc.). Repositories such as Google Books, the HathiTrust Digital Library, and Project Gutenberg make available millions of books that are in the public domain due to their term of copyright expiring.
