Copyright and Fair Use for Librarians

By | April 29, 2021

The Center for Media and Social Impact has released the brand-new, hot-off-the-presses Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Open Educational Resources, a guide for authors, adapters, and adopters of openly licensed teaching and learning materials. Open Oregon Educational Resources is partnering with Copyright First Responders Pacific Northwest to offer professional development that will expand fair use expertise among Oregon and Washington librarians who support OER projects.

How to participate:

  1. Get familiar with the basics ahead of time by exploring the resources recommended in our curated syllabus.
  2. Questions about the syllabus materials? Drop in to a Zoom office hour with the Copyright First Responders to chat. Office hours will be at the same link every day from 12-1 Pacific, May 17-21. This link includes a waiting room for security.
  3. Register for the workshop on May 25, 9-12 Pacific, and optionally stay for a brown bag lunch from 12-1. We’ll use our time together to work on sample fair use scenarios.

Thank you planners!
