5 x 5 x 5: What students & faculty need to know about copyright

At the UT Health Science Center library, librarians get a lot of questions about copyright. Although the ultimate authority for questions about copyright at the Health Science Center is the Office of Legal Affairs, here is some basic information that is important for students and faculty to understand so you can get your work done without copyright problems.

Five Myths About Copyright

  1. “If it’s published openly on the Internet, I’m free to copy and repost at will.”
  2. “If I’m using it for educational or noncommercial purposes, it’s ‘fair use’ and I don’t need to seek permission.”
  3. “If it doesn’t include the ©, it’s not copyrighted.”
  4. “If it’s out of print, it’s out of copyright.”
  5. “If I wrote it, it can’t infringe anyone else’s copyright.”

Five Principles for Copyright Success

  1. Link instead of copying
  2. Always acknowledge your sources
  3. Seek permission to reuse, redistribute or adapt
  4. Creative Commons makes it easy
  5. Manage your own copyrights wisely

Five Tools That Can Help

  1. Link Generator
  2. Citation Help Resources

Briscoe Library to Partner with SAPL on NPR Campus Community Book Club



The UT Health Science Center Briscoe Library and the San Antonio Public Library Forest Hills Branch are joining forces to start a new NPR (National Public Radio) Book Club as a community engagement project. There are many community issues that can benefit from engagement utilizing a book club as a platform for interaction and conversation. The club will meet once a month from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. at either the Briscoe Library (room 4.074, the Collaboratory) or at the Forest Hills Library (5245 Ingram Rd). An NPR reviewed book will be featured at each meeting.

Do No Harm by Henry Marsh has been selected for the first meeting on September 17th, 6 -7 p.m., held at the Briscoe Library.

Do No Harm provides unforgettable insight into the countless human dramas that take place in a busy modern hospital.  Above all, it is a lesson in the need for hope when faced with life’s most difficult decisions.

A few copies are available at the Briscoe Library on a first come, first served basis. Other copies are available through the San Antonio Public Library. Contact Peg Seger for more details at (210) 567-6398 or

Those interested in taking part in this project can stop by either library to pick up a bookmark with dates, times, and location information.
