Last week, CLRC and SCRLC hosted a resource-sharing workshop and in response to a survey of primary topics, the forerunner was copyright.
If you’re one of many interested in learning more about copyright, why not join a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Copyright for Educators and Librarians?
July 21 – August 18
Instructors: Kevin Smith, Duke University; Anne Gilliland, UNC Chapel Hill; and Lisa Macklin Emory University
“Copyright has always been a bit of a puzzle for teachers and librarians. It seems like a mysterious set of rules, and the news media occasionally reports on dire penalties imposed for copyright infringement. However, the law was designed to empower teachers and libraries, with both specific and general exceptions that facilitate education. Our goal in this course is to begin to demystify the law and help educators and librarians do their jobs more effectively.”
