Hey Professor! Do you have questions about copyright? We have the workshop for you!
UST libraries are pleased to host an event with copyright specialist Nancy Sims, who will speak about the issues and challenges of copyright from a faculty member’s perspective.
Join us on Wednesday, November 11 from 3:30-5:00pm in ASC’s Hearth Room. Refreshments will provided; register here to reserve your seat!
We’ve asked Nancy to address the following topics:
- what constitutes Fair Use
- choosing/providing access to course materials
- obtaining permission to use a copyrighted work
But come prepared with any other questions you may have: her presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer period.
Nancy is the Copyright Program Librarian at the University of Minnesota libraries. She holds a JD from the University of Michigan Law School and an MLIS from Rutgers University and says that her job is not to be the “copyright police” on her campus, but to help individuals and groups throughout the University community to understand issues surrounding copyright and scholarly communication. She is fascinated by copyright law in all of its aspects, and in particular, how individuals construct understandings of copyright as it relates to their own scholarly, artistic, professional, personal, cultural, and communicative activities.
She has published articles and presented at conferences about copyright issues, technology, and emerging forms of scholarship.
