With a looming Course Pack deadline, faculty may have copyright questions. There are legal ways to avoid having to create expensive-for students-to-print course packs. Contact your assigned library liaison for assistance with questions about using copyrighted materials in Blackboard, class handouts, or in course packs.

Librarians can help you use RightFind Academic Copyright Clearance Center‘s annual academic license.  CCC updated their system considerably this summer, and now requires a logon if you intend to use this from off-campus.  Librarians can help: verify citations; determine a copyright owner; set up a Course Reserve;  or permalink licensed library resources into Blackboard. Please take a look at the Copyright Subject Guide.

New Database: Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center

Hobbies & Crafts Reference Center database pageHobbies & Crafts Reference Center is one of the new MeL Michigan eLibrary databases. While it’s not academic in nature, everyone needs a little down-time to do things that make you happy.

You will find “detailed “how-to” instructions and creative ideas to meet the interests of virtually every hobby enthusiast. Full text is provided from leading hobby and craft magazines.” If arts & crafts do it for you, consider this new database.

If you’re off-campus or using wireless, you may be asked to log on with your last name and 7-digit Raider number.
