College & Undergraduate Libraries


Librarians, and particularly academic librarians, deal with copyright issues on almost a daily basis. It makes sense, therefore, that libraries and librarians should be the “go to” place on campus for copyright information. I am often asked by colleagues for suggestions on launching copyright education programs on their campuses. In this column, I provide steps and ideas to help you get started with a copyright education program, or at least to make you feel more confident in your efforts by providing advice from my own experiences, from educating yourself to implementing local workshops.
