Copyright Essentials for Faculty

Faculty and staff are invited to learn how to appropriately apply copyright law in their daily activities in a 3 part series of webcasts.

OVERVIEW

How copyright and fair use laws apply to teaching is not always clear. The increasing ease of copying and distribution of digital materials raises the stakes even more. Faculty often do not have access to the resources and support they need to sort those challenges out.
