    Am I allowe to quote a few excerpts from books if I credit the source on these boards? I would like to share some information from some books and authors I feel are of benefit to this community. Thank-you all.

    First, find out who owns the material or holds the copyright.

    Second, get permission from that person or organization to reproduce parts of it.

    Third, when you reproduce it here, cite the source and mention that the material is reproduced with permission.

    You may post the name of a website so our members can read the entire article for themselves provided that it is not a commercial website selling things.

    You may quote anything which is in the ProHealth Library.

    You may reproduce anything which is in the public domain; i.e., the website source ends in .gov.

    I hope this helps and doesn't further muddy the waters.

    Love, Mikie
