Licensing & Fair Use Resources
When you're putting together a service, event, website, or anything else that might be used by the public, make sure that you comply with copyright law. This can include requesting permission from the copyright holder or purchasing a performance license. If you use materials that are in the public domain or licensed as fair use (for example, if the material is licensed under Creative Commons), you don't need to purchase a license, but you may need to follow certain guidelines for both use and attribution. The following resources are places where you can either license copyrighted material or find public domain and fair use resources.
Creative Commons Search: The Creative Commons search page makes it easy to find music, videos, images, and other media that is reusable under CC licenses. There are different types of Creative Commons licenses, and they all allow for different types of use, so make sure to follow the rights as chosen by the creator. Creative Commons also has a useful guide to creating your CC attributions.
Please remember to properly attribute anything you use, even if it's in the public domain. If nothing else, it will help others find similar songs, images, or other items to use in the future!
The following libraries may be helpful resources in your research. This is not an exhaustive list, and Meadville Lombard students do not necessarily have borrowing access to the libraries listed. Meadville Lombard currently has formal borrowing agreements with ACTS libraries and with libraries marked with an asterisk (*). For information about libraries with which we have formal borrowing agreements, please read the "Using Other Libraries" section of the main Library webpage.
