It contains links to print and online resources to help graduate students, staff, and faculty explore WKU Libraries' many research materials in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling; Clinical Mental Health Counseling; School Counseling; and Student Affairs. Please feel free to contact the education librarian, Roxanne Spencer (see contact information, right), for more assistance. I am happy to help you navigate our resources to get you the materials you need! We can meet in person, via email, or phone consultation, and my time is flexible--we all lead busy lives!

Copyright, Fair Use, and TEACH ACT: What can be legitimately used for classes, face-to-face or online?

In general, these are the guidelines for educational copyright/fair use, including the TEACHACT, which deals with online classes (from the University of Arkansas Libraries' research guides): https://uark.libguides.com/CopyrightClasses

More specifically, if WKU Libraries subscribes to the journal or has a copy of the book (print or ebook), faculty can make a copy of an article or book chapter and use it for/post it to a class. If WKU Libraries does NOT own the book or subscribe to the journal, faculty should gather those materials into a course pack for that class, which is handled through the WKU Store. Course packs usually have a fee attached.
