• Course Summary

    Schoolteachers, patrons, students, and staff all use and want to reuse copyrighted material, prompting questions. As service providers, it is important that library staff have a basic understanding of copyright law and know where to find additional information.

    This webinar is an introduction to US copyright law for library staff. Participants will learn the basics, including what copyright means, what can be copyrighted, and how long a copyright lasts. The presenters will also provide a very brief introduction to fair use and share their favorite copyright resources online.

    Presented by Colleen Lyon, Head of Scholarly Communications at UT Austin, and Emilie Algenio, Copyright & Fair Use Librarian at Texas A&M University.
