When is it permissible to copy and distribute other people’s works?
When should I ask for permission?
Who do I ask?
These questions can be answered by the recently updated Luther Seminary Copyright Guidelines & Policy. If you plan to copy, scan, record, stream, or distribute materials created by others, using our facilities or equipment, you must know the basics of copyright. This policy applies to Luther Seminary faculty, staff, and students.
What if you think your use is a “Fair Use” but you are not sure? Is your use an “Ordinary Fair Use” or is it more complex? The Fair Use Checklist can help you figure it out. If you are still not sure, check your analysis with a member of the library staff, firstname.lastname@example.org, before making copies or distributing materials.
During this session Laurel Forsgren will explore the basics of Google Hangouts. Bring your device and learn how to:

- Begin an impromptu Google Hangout session and invite others
- Use other Google Hangout features (screen share, drawing)
- General Q & A for using/troubleshooting Hangouts

We have begun a 60-day trial to the digital Loeb Classical Library, "an interconnected, fully searchable, virtual library of Greek and Latin literature.
You'll find epic and lyric poetry; tragedy and comedy; history, travel, philosophy, and oratory; the great medical writers and mathematicians; ...Church Fathers....More than 520 volumes of Latin, Greek, and English texts are available in a modern and elegant interface, allowing readers to browse, search, bookmark, annotate, and share content with ease."
Key features include:
- Single- and dual-language reading modes
- Sophisticated Bookmarking and Annotation features
- Tools for sharing Bookmarks and Annotations
- Greek keyboard
- User account and "My Loeb" content saved in perpetuity
- Intuitive Search and Browse
- Inclusion of every Loeb volume in print
- Regular uploading of new and revised volumes
When you have a question and would like to reach someone in the library sooner, rather than later, another option is initiating a chat with one of the library staff.
