Copyright Help Guide


Copying for use in training sessions or for readings

Making multiple copies of copyrighted material for use in training within a Commonwealth, State or Territory Department can probably occur without notifying the copyright owner, if your government department is paying an annual fee to Copyright Agency Limited (CAL). Journal articles from databases that are subscribed to by the NT Health Library Service can be printed in multiple copies for use in training for NT Health staff. You will need to show the correct references and where you got the article from.

Alternatively, you can refer your students to a particular article or resource so that they can read,  download or print a reasonable amount (10% or one chapter from a book, or one article from a journal) for their own use.

Creating training modules


  • create your own images
  • get permission from the owner of an image you really want, or
  • visit our Finding Images & Videos help guide to learn how to find images you can use for free without breaching copyright

Journal articles:

If the article is from a journal or database that you have accessed through the NT Health Library Service you are able to use this in your training for other NT Health staff.

Resources from other institutions or government agencies:

You will need to seek permission to use their resources, unless it is clear you are able to use without permission.

Video footage or streaming media:

Linking to, or embedding streaming video from YouTube is not a breach of copyright as you're not reproducing the content. See the Can I use that video? page of our Finding Images & Video help guide for more information.
