Copyright and Intellectual Property
The copyright protections that are normally associated with print also govern the use of audio, video, images, and text on the Internet and the World Wide Web (WWW). The intuitive interface of the Internet make it easy for the computer user to copy and use images, text, video and other graphics that are likely to be protected by copyright. A document may be copyrighted even if it does not explicitly state that it is copyrighted. Educators can avoid copyright violations and legally use copyrighted materials if they understand and comply with the fair use guidelines.
The Mother Theresa Hackelmeier Memorial Library maintains a collection to support the learning experiences of the students and the teaching and research activities of the faculty and staff of Marian University. The primary focus of the collection is on materials that serve the undergraduate and graduate curricula.
In order to support this mission, the Library houses more than 100,000 print volumes as well as database subscriptions providing students online access to a variety of scholarly titles beyond the Library’s print collection. Materials not held in the collection may be requested via the Library’s InterLibrary Loan Department free of charge. A variety of study options are available in the Library including individual study carrels, 3rd floor Quiet Area space, several group study spaces, and general areas for individual or group work. For Marian University affiliated users bringing mobile devices to the Library, wireless network access is available throughout the building. The building also includes an electronic instruction lab equipped with computers for interactive teaching.
Mother Theresa Hackelmeier Memorial Library is staffed with highly trained, professional librarians available to assist students in their research endeavors and to instruct individuals or entire classes in the most effective and efficient research applications available in today’s academic library. In person, email, and phone reference assistance is available to all Marian students and faculty.
