Can I use a free book on the internet in my presentation or post it on iLearn?

Although ebooks can be used in a classroom presentation under Fair Use, this does not apply if the book was posted online illegally. Faculty are responsible for verifying if materials they show in class were posted online legally. You can email us at if you’re unsure.

Keep in mind that the library may be able to purchase the ebook. Email your Liaison Librarian if you want to suggest a book to add to our collection.

Never repost things found online to iLearn. It is always better to link to a resource instead.
