The ACRL Framework Sandbox is getting a new look! Beginning June 1, 2020, we’re pausing the ability to contribute a resource, create an account, and log in to an existing account during essential site maintenance. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to view Sandbox resources. Learn more.

Which Creative Commons licenses does the Sandbox use?

A Creative Commons license assigned to your resource signals and invites others to transform and adapt your materials to their own contexts. 

In the spirit of sharing and openness, it is highly encouraged that you consider assigning to your resources a Creative Commons license, as long as you have the permission and right to do so. 

Contributors to the Sandbox are given the following Creative Commons licenses as options when selecting a license to assign to their resources:
