Faculty frequently call us to request information about whether it would be a violation of copyright to use a particular article or video. It is encouraging that faculty are aware that copyright does restrict the use of certain resources. With the introduction of the new copyright page at Loyola (http://www/luc.edu/copyright) many of these questions can be addressed. The Fair Use Checklist will be of particular relevance to faculty planning what materials to use in their courses. There is also a new copyright email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) that faculty can use to pose questions about what can and cannot be legally used under education fair use, etc.
To help further inform faculty, the Copyright Committee, FCIP and University Libraries have invited Laura “Lolly” Gasaway to provide more information and address faculty members’ questions. Lolly is the Paul B. Eaton Distinguished Professor of Law Emeritus at the University of North Carolina School of Law; she will be joining us at 10:00 on Friday, October 4 in the Klarchek Information Commons on the 4th floor. Please plan to come and inform yourself about your copyright rights and obligations. So that we have an idea how many people will be attending, we request an RSVP to email@example.com.
