Copyright Workshop Set for January

Pickler Memorial Library and Information Technology Services will co-sponsor a copyright workshop for faculty and staff from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Jan. 10 in the Student Union Building Activities Room. Lunch will be provided for attendees.

Paul D. Callister, professor of law at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, will present information on the key copyright issues encountered by faculty and staff in higher education. The workshop is interactive in format and will provide attendees with the opportunity to work in small groups to discuss and provide resolutions to typical copyright problems.

Various topics of interest will be covered including aspects of copyright related to fair use, the TEACH Act, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Blackboard and use of media materials. The workshop is designed for individuals who are knowledgeable about copyright and looking for a refresher, as well as for individuals looking for an introduction to copyright law.

Truman faculty and staff will receive an email soon providing more details regarding the registration process.
