GALILEO Screen Captures Policy 5.1

Educational Use

Images and screens from GALILEO may be freely used for educational purposes by non-profit institutions participating in the GALILEO initiative. Examples of such GALILEO images and screens are the homepage, menus, icons, lists of citations, search screens, scope and help screens, and Guide to Internet Resources. Examples of appropriate use would be screen captures incorporated in library instructional materials (handouts, web pages, PowerPoint presentations, etc.).

Permission to use screens of text or images that are not under USG copyright must be requested from the copyright holder. Images and text that are not under USG copyright include those from the many licensed resources accessible through GALILEO. Use of such content may be subject to additional terms and conditions of contracts, vendors, and publishers. Examples would be text and images from EBSCOhost databases, OCLC FirstSearch databases, ProQuest databases, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts databases, etc. For more information about educational use, see Policy on the Use of Copyrighted Works in Education and Research.

Commercial Use

Authors or organizations wishing to include GALILEO images or screens in a work for commercial publication must submit a written request for permission. Such requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis by the Executive Director for Library Services. If approved, permission will be granted by the University System of Georgia for materials for which it holds the copyright.

If the request is approved, the Executive Director will forward authorization documents to the Office of Legal Affairs for signature by the designated signatory for University System contracts and agreements.

If the request is not approved, the Executive Director will so notify the requester.
