Resources from Copyright Information Pages


Image Search Resources


Institutional Repository (IR) Resources

The best place to find information about your institution’s IR is to check your internal policy. These resources, like the information page, offer general information. For a(nother) collection of IR resources, visit the Digital Commons page Research on Institutional Repositories: Articles and Presentations


Additional Copyright & Fair Dealing Academic Resources

These articles address copyright and intellectual property rights in academia around the world. While some these articles may not focus on copyright, image use, or fair use, I found each held relevant information and illuminated the concerns of students, researchers, and faculty in various countries.
