There are times when a copyrighted work may be used for personal or educational purposes without obtaining permission. There are, however, limits to what is considered "fair use." These limits apply to materials used in the classroom as well as library reserves and items posted on BlackBoard. Being able to use material without permission does not mean being able to use it without attribution. In accordance with Mercyhurst University's policy on academic honesty, proper citations should be used when appropriate.
