Library Offers “Copyright in the Classroom” Workshop

Instructors can enhance their teaching by using copyrighted material including films/videos, art, publications, charts and graphs and more. U.S. Copyright Law, including the TEACH Act, guides classroom use including provision for Fair Use. Join us as we review the basic parameters of the legal use of copyrighted materials and familiarize you with the services available from the library when you need them.

This librarian-led workshop will be held on Tuesday, October 13th at 1:00 p.m. in room 242 of the library. No registration is necessary. For questions, please contact Nora Allred at nsallred@mtu.edu or 7-3208.


“Copyright and Your Thesis or Dissertation,” an Upcoming Library Workshop

Who owns the copyright to my dissertation?  When using an image from another work, do I need copyright permission? If I do, how much does it cost?  What are the benefits of making my thesis open access? Get the answers to these and other questions at the library workshop, Copyright and Your Thesis or Dissertation.

This workshop will examine the role U.S. Copyright Law plays in the thesis or dissertation writing and publishing processes. The use of copyrighted material, publishing agreements and the role of the Digital Commons @ Michigan Tech repository will be explored.  

Please join us on Tuesday, October 6 at 1:00p.m. in room 242 of the library. No registration is required. For questions, please contact Nora Allred at nsallred@mtu.edu or 487-3208.
