Many of our pages include still images, audio, video, and other multimedia content owned by our parent institution, Georgia State University.  We do not claim ownership of any material created by Georgia State University and such material is not included in the terms of this license.

Additionally, many of our pages include material owned and created by other people or institutions. For example, we frequently use images and video tutorials created and shared by libraries and individuals on the web. We use these items either under the terms of another Creative Commons license or under fair use. We do not claim ownership of any material created by a third party and such material is not included in the terms of this license. We make a good faith effort to provide attribution and credit to all third-party materials we use in our website.

This license is superseded by any specific terms noted on any page: in other words, individual pages on this site may be marked with different types of licenses. If so, the terms of that specific license apply instead of this blanket CC BY-NC license.
