Copyright services and resources for teaching

Wednesday, November 27, 2019

As we head into the Winter term, we’re reaching out to all instructors to remind you of the services and resources available for assisting with copyright questions that relate to your teaching.



  • The Copyright at Waterloo website provides information to assist you, including a frequently asked questions page, and the Fair Dealing Advisory. These pages are available to guide the use of resources in your teaching.
  • E-Journals and e-Books are almost always covered by license agreements. License agreements set out specific rules to follow when using electronic resources.
    • To find out if you can use licensed content in LEARN, use the Finding Usage Rights page for step-by-step instructions on how to find license terms.

If you have any questions about copyright or licensing, please send them to

For more help using Library resources in your teaching, reach out to your Liaison Librarian. To find the Librarian for your subject area, use the Librarians by subject page.
