Private Faculty Websites

Copyright


Private faculty websites are not an extension of the University of Winnipeg nor does the University authorize such sites for students. The educational institutions user rights benefits in the Copyright Act and the University's Copyright Policy do not apply to content on private faculty websites.

Where faculty create private websites for student use they would be advised to ensure the only material on the site is if the faculty member:

  • Owns the copyright for the items;
  • Has written permission from the copyright owner to use the items in this way;
  • Is using items in the public domain; or
  • Is linking to other website content, provided that it is not to any of the University of Winnipeg Library e-resources.

To ensure copyright compliance, faculty members can use library course reserves to provide students with course material.
