In what I am sure is going to become a common practice for academic libraries around the country, the University of Michigan Library has adopted Creative Commons’ Attribution-Non-Commercial licenses for all works created by the Library for which the Regents of the University of Michigan hold the copyrights. This means that anyone can copy, distribute, or display any of these works as long as the user gives proper attribution to the University of Michigan Library, and as long as the use is non-commercial. The eligible copyrights include many resources such as bibliographies, research guides, and lesson plans. The ball is now in your court Ohio State University Library.
