Copyright Resources

Copyright at CCSF

The topic of copyright can at first seem overwhelming and complex.  It is intertwined with many activities in an academic environment and it is important for students, faculty, and staff to understand the basics and to know where to turn at the college for information and support.  This guide is designed to help you make good decisions and to ensure that you have as much flexibility as possible using, creating, and sharing information with others.  

If you have questions after exploring this content, please don't hesitate to bring them to the library.  The faculty librarians at any CCSF library are happy to help you find answers and resources to support your copyright needs.  When in doubt, contact us!
