Per university policy AD49: Office of General Counsel, the request should be forwarded to the Office of General Counsel to arrange the permission. Send it to David Giannantonio (firstname.lastname@example.org). Once permission is arranged, the General Counsel's office leaves the format of the acknowledgment up to the unit. One style is to provide a standard citation for the item (in whatever style the publisher is using), then add "Permission granted by the Pennsylvania State University."
University guideline ACG02: Open Availability and Open Licensing of Instructional and Other Materials encourages university units "to make university-owned instructional materials and other university-owned materials openly available when appropriate," including under "a Creative Commons or other public or open-source license." The "Head/Dean of the administrative unit, or their designate," determines whether to release works under such licenses.
