Institutional Policy on the Use of Copyrighted Materials
The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences is an accredited nonprofit educational institution supporting the activities of educators, scholars, researchers, and students. UAMS promotes an environment of compliance with copyright laws through the campus-wide distribution of the Guidelines for UAMS Faculty, Staff, and Students Using Copyrighted Materials throughout the Colleges and the educational support units.
UAMS promotes the educational and research use of copyrighted materials (Appendix A. Basic Copyright Law) through the appropriate application of the provisions provided in copyright law for fair use (Appendix B. Fair Use) and for specific exemptions granted for educational and research purposes (Appendix C. Exemptions). At this time, exemptions include the Teaching Exemption, the provisions for distance education covered by the Technology, Education, and Copyright Harmonization Act (TEACH Act), and special Library Exemptions. UAMS observes ‘best practices’ and ‘guidelines’ commonly accepted within the academic community (Appendix D. Guidelines).
Appendix E. Institutional Responsibilities of UAMS addresses the institutional administrative and technological responsibilities required to take advantage of fair use and exemptions.
