A Request: We hope that you may be willing to take a few moments to fill out an online survey with some questions about your current experiences with and knowledge of copyright issues. Your answers will help us develop programming, like workshops and online training materials, that more directly addresses your informational needs. They will also help inform scholarship on copyright issues. No prior knowledge of copyright is expected - all are welcome to participate.
