Library Shelfie

#LibraryShelfie? For the #TarGram Challenge? A library shelfie is the PERFECT blog post for the Scholarly Communications Office.

Sometimes when you are trying to untangle a problem, you may not even know where to start. This is true of all research projects, but perhaps this is most true when you’re trying to unravel copyright law, whether you’re putting together your syllabus or textbook or signing your publication contract. By the time you’re doing that, we understand that the last thing you want to do is to research an area with which you may be unfamiliar. Well, come talk to us in Scholarly Communication. We can answer your questions or give you some introductory reading.

Some of the introductory materials that we would use, like the Statement of Best Practices in Fair use of Dance-Related Materials, Complete Copyright for K-12 Librarians and Educators, and NOLO books on copyright law. There are other books that we can point you to, depending on what you need.  We can also help you find useful websites and ebooks, so you can learn about copyright in your home, dorm, or office. Come to the Scholarly Communications Office and talk to us!  We want to make sure that you have the resources that you need for your issue with copyright.
