The Public Domain

It is better to use a free resource in your classroom instead of a work with a copyright. There are three categories of resources that are free to use:

  • works in the Public Domain,
  • works with a Creative Commons license, and
  • works created by the U.S. government.

Use the menu on the left for more information about these different types of resources and where to find them. If you need help searching for these resources, contact a librarian.
