This site offers information on copyright policy, copyright clearance services, and copyright training and tutorials for the Cornell community. It is designed to raise our awareness of the overarching issues, and to answer some of the questions that faculty, staff, and students frequently articulate. If you have questions about using copyrighted materials, whether in e-reserves, on course management sites, on other sites, or in face-to-face classroom settings, we hope you'll find the answers you're looking for here. If you don't find the answers you need, contact us!
