UT Southwestern authorized users (faculty, residents, fellows, staff, students) are protected by a UT System Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) annual license agreement to manage copyright infringement risk for UT System campuses. The CCC license permits the use and distribution of content for purposes such as teaching, research collaboration, and scholarly sharing.
In addition to protection under the UT System CCC license, additional protections are provided by campus-wide institutional license agreements, fair use provisions under federal copyright law, and freely available materials with no copyright restrictions.
Together, these copyright protections constitute our “web of rights” to mitigate the risk of copyright infringement for all UT System authorized users.

Authorized users are permitted to access many electronic resources from remote, non-campus locations (homes, offices, etc.) using acceptable remote access methods. For more information about those methods, please see the Library’s Off-Campus Access page.
