Fall Copyright Workshops Open!

The University of Minnesota Libraries offer free copyright information workshops to the UMN community. Most are aimed at faculty,
but open to participation by others. RCR continuing ed
credit is often available.

If these scheduled sessions are not convenient or relevant for you, we also offer sessions for research groups and departments at more convenient times or on custom topics. Please email me if you’d like to set that up.

(At least two online-only sessions will be added a little later in the semester for faculty and others who work out-state or at the Crookston, Duluth, Morris, and Rochester campuses.)

Can I Use That?: Dealing with Copyright in Everyday Life

Quotation, criticism, review, collage, parody – Copyright presents some
big challenges in all of those situations! Participants in this workshop
will develop an understanding of the complexities of copyright by
exploring examples from visual arts, music, and video, as well as
academic research and writing. Expect to think hard, discuss a little,
and have fun! No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is
informational in nature.

Primarily intended for faculty, researchers, and graduate students engaged in the scholarly writing & publishing process. Satisfies RCR continuing education awareness/discussion requirements.

Know Your Rights: Copyright Essentials for Authors and Creators

How many copyrights do you own? How long will they last? Can you post
your paper online? Can someone else quote from your paper in their own?
This workshop will provide a solid grounding in some of the elements of
copyright law that are essential to scholarship, teaching, and research.
Learn more about protections in the law for educators, and about your
rights as an author or creator. Discuss and debate with your peers about
some of the burning questions in the field, and enjoy exploring some
entertaining and thought-provoking examples. No direct legal advice will
be provided; this workshop is informational and educational in nature.

Copyright in the Classroom (and Online)


Can you show a movie in class? Can you distribute copies of a newspaper article? What are
you allowed to post on your Moodle site, anyway? What about your

copyright issues in the classroom, and in teaching online. Learn how the
library can help you with electronic reserves and links to subscription
materials. No direct legal advice will be provided; this workshop is
informational in nature.
NO RCR credit available, sorry.
