Welcome to WKU Libraries' research guide for the School of Teacher Education. This guide contains links to print and online resources to help students, staff, and faculty explore WKU Libraries' many research materials in elementary, middle grades, and secondary education. 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. We can meet in person, via email, or by phone consultation.

Useful Education Information
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.
