Copyright Guidelines at SWCU
Duplication and use of Copyrighted Materials Adopted (Fall, President's Council, 2009) It is the intent of Southwestern Christian University to delineate, enforce and abide by the provisions of current United States copyright laws as they affect the life and activities of the institution, its employees, and its students.
Copyrighted materials, whether they are print or non-print, will not be duplicated or used unless such reproduction meets "fair use" standards or unless written permission from the copyright holder has been received. Details about "fair use" (that copying and/or use which is allowed by federal law) will be made available to all instructors, students, or administrators as requested or needed.
A summary of these standards will be posted or otherwise made easily available at each duplicating machine used for making copies. A summary of these standards will be made available to all in the University Library.
The administration of SCU does not sanction illegal duplication or use in any form. Employees and students who willfully disregard the district’s copyright position are in violation of SCU Policy; they do so at their own risk and assume all liability personally.
