Educational use of material is subject to copyright laws and all staff are responsible for making sure that material supplied to students is copyright compliant. You should add texts and films to a Reading List so that library staff can manage copyright and source appropriate access on your behalf. Library staff will directly licence full text from publishers or make licensed copies, where required. Reading material should not be uploaded directly to FLO or sent via email. Music can be used in FLO under the provisions of the Music Licence.
To learn more about using third party material in teaching, you can undertake the short Copyright for Academic Staff module (15-20 minutes) by self-enrolling via FLO.
To use images (e.g. images from the internet) in teaching, use the University’s PowerPoint template so that the appropriate copyright notice is included (as this usage also requires a paid licence). All image sources should be credited. More information about sourcing suitable images is available in the Copyright for Academic Staff module in FLO (go to the Copyright for Teaching book and then page 6: Using images in teaching).
Examples of how to use copyright material are available on the Frequently Asked Questions page. For assistance from the Copyright Librarian in using specific content, submit a Copyright in my teaching request via Service One with details of the material you would like to use and how you plan to use it.
If you require general assistance with sourcing teaching materials that can be widely used in online teaching, submit an Online Content for Topics request in Service One to contact the Library’s learning and teaching specialists.
