Ask about copyright, fair dealing and usage

Use of copyrighted materials for instructional and research purposes may require the permission of the copyright holder, but often does not. We’re here to help you find out which applies in your situation.

Waterloo’s Copyright Guidelines site and the Fair Dealing Advisory provide guidance on permissible use of copyrighted materials under Canada’s copyright laws.
Permissible usage of most electronic resources is governed by terms of licenses negotiated by the Library. Consult the Electronic Resources Appropriate Use Guidelines to view terms that generally apply. Many ejournal “Get it @ Waterloo” records display license permissions and prohibitions.
To request further assistance, submit a copyright, fair dealing or usage rights question in the following form.
