The Basics of Copyright
Noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 24

The University community interacts with copyright in a variety of ways. Presented via Zoom, this workshop will provide an overview of copyright legislation, fair use and open licensing.

  • The laws that form U.S. copyright
  • How to identify materials that are no longer under copyright
  • The elements of the fair use exception
  • The basics of open access licensing

Please note that this workshop will not cover author rights, patents or trademarks.

Applying Fair Use in the Classroom
Noon to 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 26

This year has required that we teach in a variety of modes. What was a difficult task — being copyright compliant — has become even more complicated. Join the Libraries on Microsoft Teams for an overview of copyright legislation and a discussion of fair use. Investigate some best practices for copyright compliance in your classroom.
