Copyright for Librarians Course Materials

All Duke Libraries Copyright Consultants have taken an extensive copyright training course. This course gives an intense, in-depth exploration of copyright issues for libraries, archives, and higher education. It covers everything from first principles of copyright law to technical, modern adaptations for specific online situations. Course materials (slides, handouts, in-class problems) are linked here.


Duke University Libraries Office of Copyright and Scholarly CommunicationThe Duke Libraries Copyright Consultants program is sponsored by the Duke University Libraries Office of Copyright and Scholarly Communication. The basic idea for the program draws on the great work done by the creators of the Harvard Library Copyright First Responders program and the UNC Chapel Hill Libraries P2P Copyright Network.
