Upcoming workshop: April 11, 2014

Fair Use & Copyright on Campus ... What CAN We Do?

Date: Friday, April 11, 2014 
Time: 10 - 11 am 
Location: Library, Classroom #1 

Attend this workshop to get answers to your nagging questions and dispel the top myths about copyright.

  • Can I stream this film on Blackboard?
  • Can I give my students copies of my journal article?
  • If it's for educational purposes, then it is fair use ...  right? 

If you use articles, books, films, music, or images when you teach, you will encounter copyright issues, since much of the intellectual material we use in education is protected by copyright.   "Fair Use and Copyright on Campus" provides basic information on copyright and educational exemptions that can help you navigate these issues as you encounter them in your work.  

While focused on instruction, this workshop is useful for all university staff who may be faced with copyrighted material in the course of thier daily work.

Welcome to the Copyright Advisory Center


The Copyright Advisory Center is available to provide assistance to faculty, students and staff with any questions related to copyright and use of copyrighted material.

Copyright presents a complex landscape which can sometimes be confusing to navigate. Since much of the material we encounter on a day to day basis is likely to be protected, it is important to have a basic understanding of copyright when using the works of others on the job, in the classroom, or for personal purposes.

This guide provides a brief overview of key copyright concepts along with links to a number of informative resources which can help familiarize you with the subject. The following list provides a sampling of the information available on this website:
