Often viewed as a hindrance and a source of apprehension, copyright law affects all educators and academic librarians. As colleges and universities increase their online course (educational/instructional) offerings, the rights of ownership and rules of fair use are only further complicated. Join the ACRL Distance Learning Section Discussion Group for a discussion focused on the state of copyright in distance learning. Learn more about the role of librarians in providing resource support for distance learning courses and faculty’s teaching needs. Panelists include Copyright MOOC facilitators Kevin Smith from Duke University and Anne Gilliland (formerly of OSU) from the University of North Caroline-Chapel Hill as well as Luann Edwards of Tiffin University and Patricia Aufderheide of American University, this will be an opportune conversation to advance your understanding and competency in distance learning copyright issues.
