Copyright and Open Licensing Issues

June 7, 2021 All day

Apply for a seat in this four-week course.

The question of copyright comes up frequently in librarianship, and issues surrounding copyright limitations pervade all aspects of library work including publishing, acquisitions, electronic resources management, metadata, resource sharing, and patron interactions. In this course, you will learn the foundations of copyright law, the types of resources that both are and are not covered by copyright restrictions, exceptions and limitations to copyright such as fair use and the TEACH Act, and open licensing options, including an overview of Creative Commons licenses.

By the end of the course, you will have a better understanding of how copyright law applies in multiple library settings and scenarios and be able to handle copyright questions from your community with more confidence and ease. Note: this course primarily focuses on United States copyright law.
