The McGill Office of Copyright Compliance

Have you ever asked yourself how much of a scanned book can I post for a class in MyCourses? Or can I use these images in a PowerPoint presentation that will be publicly available online? The Office of Copyright Compliance can help you find your answer. New in August of this year, the Office was created to support and promote best practice in copyright in teaching and research for all students, faculty and staff at the university.
