Gale OneFile: Educator’s Reference Complete is a great resource for educators—from teachers and administrators to those studying in the field at the collegiate and graduate level. It seeks to provide full text for titles in the ERIC database and covers multiple levels of education and every educational specialty, such as technology, bilingual education, health education, and testing, and provides insight on issues in administration, funding, and policy.
Fair Use Guidelines for Education
Linked here is a basic guide to what you can do with copyrighted material and still be considered "fair use." Often we assume that if it's for education, we can do whatever we want, but there are still limitations.
Some basic limits that are particularly useful when creating multimedia presentations for a class are:
One chart, picture, diagram, or cartoon per book or per periodical issue.
No more than five images (e.g. a photograph or illustration) by a single artist or photographer.
No more than 10 percent or three minutes (whichever is less) of lawfully acquired copyright video.
Up to 10 percent or 30 seconds (whichever is less) of a copyright musical composition.
