In addition to this guide, librarians and administrators at PCCC are here to assist the College community with course-related copyright questions. Please contact a librarian for general copyright advisement; Luis Ruiz (x5877) about putting course items on reserve in the library; Elizabeth Pachella (x5880) with copyright questions regarding online courses and Blackboard.
