The University of Texas System has purchased an Annual Copyright License with the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC).  This license permits the reuse of most text-based content for electronic course content as well as for coursepacks, classroom handouts, library reserves, e-mail, research collaboration, and administrative communications.  This license covers most academic and research uses of content, but it does not cover interlibrary loan, commercial document delivery, promotion and advertising, and cover-to-cover copying.  The CCC license is separate from the complex licenses that provide access to journal content and are managed by the Research Medical Library at MD Anderson. 

More information is available about the license from the University of Texas System to validated users (MyID) under the Copyright Clearance Center License Implementation.

To see if the article you wish to post for your students is covered under the CCC license, search for the journal title in the Get Permission search box at


Check to see if the journal has an Academic License – Digital/Print.


If the journal is not covered by the Academic License, you have an option to purchase copyright permission under the Pay-Per-Use Options.


For an excellent overview of copyright and fair use, visit the Stanford Fair Use & Copyright Center.
