Copyright class offered at the University Library

Copyright and Publishing Essentials
Copyright law has a profound impact on the professional lives of university faculty, all of whom are both users and creators of copyrighted material. This session will provide an introduction to copyright questions that most affect scholarly authors, such as: What does copyright protect and for how long? Who owns the copyright? When do you need permission to use other people’s works in your writing and teaching? What is involved in transferring rights to others? How can you protect your interests in dealing with journals and publishers? How can you increase the impact of your work by use of Creative Commons licenses or by depositing your work in Deep Blue?
Two sessions scheduled for Fall 2008:
Wednesday, September 28th from 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm, in the Faculty Exploratory, Hatcher Graduate Library.
Thursday, November 6th from 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm, in the Faculty Exploratory, Hatcher Graduate Library.
