This is part of a series of news posts for Fair Dealing Week (February 26 to March 2, 2018).
Have you ever wanted to use copyright material while writing your paper? How about while you were teaching a course? Because of fair dealing provisions in the Copyright Act of Canada, you can. Fair dealing allows students, researchers, and faculty to use short excerpts of copyrighted material, without permission from the copyright holder, for specific purposes, including research, private study, and educational uses.
Fair dealing is your right. During Fair Dealing Week, the University of Manitoba Libraries wants you to be aware of this right. To read more about fair dealing, visit the U of M’s guide at http://umanitoba.ca/copyright/copyright_basics.html#Fair_Dealing_Exemption. This is all the more important since the Canadian Government is currently conducting a review of the Copyright Act.
If you ever have any questions about fair dealing or copyright, please contact the Copyright Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Health Sciences Library:
