Author/Creator Rights and User Rights

This guide is brought to you by the Office of Scholarly Communications, where our goal is to help you reach yours.


Safeguarding Your Rights, Sharing Your Work, and Using Others' Work


You want to safeguard the rights to your work. You also want to respect the rights of others when you use their work in your own research, scholarship, teaching, or creative endeavors. This guide directs you to resources and services offered by the University Libraries which will enable you to make responsible decisions about sharing your work and using the work of others.

For personal consultation, contact your subject librarian or make an appointment with the Scholarly Communications team.
