Copyright Clearance & Support

Copyright Clearance

Landmark College maintains an institutional license with the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) for copyright permissions from thousands of publishers.

The College expects faculty and staff to obtain permission for the distribution of copyright-protected materials via the CCC's easy-to-use interface.

Visit the CCC's Annual License - Academic search interface,
and enter either the book or journal's:

  • publication title (of the book or journal—not the essay, chapter, or article)
  • or ISBN/ISSN
  • or publisher...

...and your results list will indicate whether use is covered by the license, and under what terms (if any).

Multimedia Materials Copyright

The CCC license covers print materials and online versions of print materials. For guidance in using multimedia materials legally, the City University of New York's Baruch College offers faculty an Interactive Guide to Using Copyrighted Media in Your Courses.

Copyright Support

The Landmark College Library offers assistance with:

  • using the Copyright Clearance Center's Annual License permissions interface
  • finding other options for resources not covered by the CCC license
  • finding resources on copyright issues pertaining to faculty and staff 

The Library staff cannot, however, offer any legal advice about copyright.

Email (, call (802-387-1648), or visit the Library with any questions.
