Our copyright librarian, Nancy Sims, will be offering a variety of copyright workshops in the next few weeks. If you're interested please follow the links below and register.  These classes will satisfy RCR requirements.


Copyright Essentials for Authors and Creators
How many copyrights do you own? How long will they last? Can you post your paper online? Can someone else quote from your paper in their own? This workshop will provide a solid grounding in some of the elements of copyright law that are essential to scholarship, teaching, and research. Learn more about protections in the law for educators, and about your rights as an author or creator. Discuss and debate with your peers about some of the burning questions in the field, and enjoy exploring some entertaining and thought-provoking examples. No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is informational and educational in nature.
