I Can Just Use This, Right? : a Copyright Survival Guide for Librarians


Are your students confused by copyright? Do you struggle to find the answers to their questions? You are not alone!

This final session of our Librarian Toolkit series on helping researchers to publish, this workshop will deal with common copyright questions which arise during the publication process. From including copyrighted work in a thesis to sharing published work on social networks copyright is a complex minefield and it can be hard to know where to start when giving advice.

This session for librarians will equip attendees with knowledge about third party copyright, making work available open access and how researchers can share their work legally online.

Target audience
  • Cambridge University Librarians
  • Further details regarding eligibility criteria are available
Topics covered
  • Copyright basics
  • What researchers can use (third party copyright)
  • Copyright and Open Access
  • The use of images in theses
  • What researchers can do with their work post-publication

Please note: this session does not look at copyright as covered by the CLA Licence.
