Librarians in Training: Copyright at the Enquiry Desk new Mon 13 Jan 2020   14:30 [Places]

If questions at the Enquiry Desk such as “How much of this can I copy?”, “Can I scan this book on someone else’s behalf?” and “Can I use this image in my teaching presentation / coursework / published article?” sound familiar, this is the course for you!

This session aims to provide you with a framework for analysing copyright enquiries, considering:

  • Who owns the item, and does this make a difference?
  • What is the copy to be used for?
  • What are the specific exceptions to copyright you should be aware of?
  • Where can you seek additional information on copyright issues?

There will be an opportunity to submit examples of copyright enquiries you receive in advance of the course or you can bring them along on the day.
