Is it permissible to post PDFs of articles on course Canvas sites?

Our answer:

In order to ensure copyright compliance, it’s recommended that instructors use FSU Libraries’ Course Reserves service to make supplementary readings available on Canvas. If the Libraries’ have electronic access to an article, a link to the journal article rather than the PDF will be posted to Canvas. In cases where an article is only available through the Libraries in print form, Course Reserves will scan it, attach a copyright notice, and upload it to the course Canvas site for the time period in which it’s needed. In some cases, Course Reserves can obtain copyright permission for the use of articles from journals not available through the Libraries.
