We have prepared a few items to help you navigate these thorny issues:

  2. Anything Goes? (infographic)
  3. Copyright, Not Copywrong (infographic)
  4. Copyright Quick Guide (infographic)
  5. A Good Rule of Thumb (infographic)

For information about the four factors of fair use, and a handy checklist, check out Columbia University's Copyright Advisory page.

Additional supplemental readings are typically placed on Moodle, the course management system which Augustana uses. If you are unsure about parameters for what can be placed on Moodle, please refer to our Moodle Quick Guide or to the Augustana College Copyright Policy. To access these materials:

  1. Go to
  2. Log in using your Augustana username and password.

If you wish to fill out the paperwork before bringing items to the 2nd floor desk, or if you plan to send the items over with a student worker, please use our reserve form.
