Tips for Locating Articles About Copyright and Fair Use

When searching for articles by a topic, a phrase or a person's name use quotation marks. Quotation marks will help you to search more effectively by locating an exact match of that searched topic, phrase or person's name within the library database.

For example:

"copyright term"

"fair use checklist"

"public domain"

Additional search boxes can be used to add additional search terms as needed.

In many of the databases search filters can help you to limit your online search by format type. Format types include: peer reviewed journal articles, magazine, newspaper articles, eBooks and multi-media formats.

A timeline if often available as a search filter to help you to limit your search results by publication date.
