Fair use is a powerful tool in the hands of librarians, teachers, and students. As anyone who has attempted to explain copyright law knows, fair use is also surrounded by misconceptions. This 90 minute workshop will review copyright and the fair use exception as it applies to academic institutions while providing a framework for participants to teach it to students and colleagues. This workshop is intended for participants who are already familiar with the copyright system in the United States. Participants seeking to refresh their knowledge of copyright prior to the workshop may wish to consult some of the materials listed at anaenriquez.wordpress.com/blog (January 12, 2016 post).
