ABSTRACT
The article discusses the copyright awareness programs of several academic libraries, particularly of the Northern Kentucky University (NUK) in Highland Heights. It states that the Fair Use legal rights under section 107 of the Copyright Act of 1976 have caused confusion to academic librarians and instructors. Thus, several initiatives have been implemented by the Association of College and Research Libraries in the web site to aid the problem. Moreover, it notes NKU's establishment of W. Frank Steely Library for the education of its faculty and staff on the Fair Use and TEACH (Teaching, Education and Copyright Harmonization) Act.
