This item is useful because it provides clear instructions on how to attribute sources. It also links to a useful Excel template to record your sources (I would have preferred Slides, so you can share; also, I would imagine there are ways to automatically convert from Excel to HTML or document text in various formats, though the post doesn't mention any). The post doesn't mention how to user and attribute sources under Fair Dealing (Fair Use in the U.S.) which seems to me to be a gap. Also, I don't agree that you need to do viral marketing for Creative Commons every time you link to a resource; the license is on the resource, so linking to the resource is sufficient (not everyone would agree with me here, though).
