Copyright Basics for Academia

From course management systems to e-reserves, technology and changes to copyright law are affecting the way faculty, staff, and students share information. This program is intended to provide a quick, but in-depth look at important concerns surrounding the use of copyright-protected content within an academic environment.

Beneficial as both an initial exposure to copyright, as well as a refresher for those who contend with these issues regularly, Copyright Basics for Academia is appropriate for librarians, faculty and staff members, administrators, bookstore, copy shop and reprographic personnel, IT professionals, course developers, students, and anyone who wants to gain a basic understanding of copyright in academia.
