Faculty Classroom Support

This guide will provide information on how to link to library resources in canvas, give you some copyright guidelines, and outline our instruction program.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me through the links to the right.

Copyright

Copyright is complicated. Black-and-white answers are the exception rather than the rule. This often frustrates faculty and students alike. The Mervyn H. Sterne Library has created a resource to provide fast and accurate copyright information to the UAB community. Nothing on this site should be construed as legal advice.

Why Link?

Some of you may ask, "Why link to articles when I can download and post them?"  Linking to articles you accessed through UAB Libraries' databases is preferred because you are linking to content that the library already licenses.

You may also wonder, "Why do I need a librarian to teach my class how to research?"  Subject librarians keep up-to-date in their fields and know not only how to search different databases but other new and noteworthy free resources.
