During this time, there have been some adjustments to the copyright and fair use policy for colleges and universities. Please note that copyright has not been suspended, but fair use has expanded temporarily. Here is a brief summary of the changes. Below that is a link to the full document created on March 13, 2020.
Please complete the Digitization Request Form below. Once you have submitted the form, we will check for freely-available electronic versions. If we cannot access an electronic version, we will try to digitize the item for you. To avoid copyright violations, any materials digitized by the library or by the faculty must be restricted to class members only and must be removed from Canvas at the end of the semester.
Access databases by clicking on them from the library website, which will serve as your portal to all content provided by the libraries. (Instead of doing a Google search for a database by name, which will not associate you with Emmanuel College.) From off campus, you will be asked to log in using the GALILEO password.
You can link to library resources in Canvas by adding a URL Resource to a Course Page or adding a hyperlink to text on a page. It's safer to copy the permalink (permanent link) than the URL in the address bar because address bar URLs can change whereas permalinks do not.
Permalinks for ebooks and articles are clearly marked with a link symbol on the ebook or article page in GALILEO. A permalink for a database can be found in the "Database A-Z" area of GALILEO. Click on "more" in the database description and the expanded description with the permalink at the bottom will be shown.
If you need assistance locating a permalink or incorporating it into Canvas, please contact Mrs. Deborah Millier.
Access to downloaded files can be managed in Canvas under the "Manage Access" tab at the top once a file has been selected. In addition to publish/unpublish, faculty can set access to "only available to students with link" or they can "schedule student availability."
