Teaching Fair Use

copyright symbol
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 workshop hosted by Ana Enriquez of the U-M Library Copyright Office will review copyright and fair use as it applies to academic institutions while providing a framework for participants to teach it to students and colleagues. The workshop is designed for participants who have some previous knowledge of copyright law.

Join us in the Clark Library as we set off around the world at our monthly open house. Ride the rails across the United States, catch a steamship across the Mediterranean, and board a plane bound for the Arctic with Captain Wilkins. Then follow in the footsteps of Mr. Phileas Fogg and Jean Passepartout as they race around the globe in 80 days, trying to make their deadline back at London's Reform Club. Bring your passport and camera and join us! “I see that it is by no means useless to travel, if a man wants to see something new.” (Jules Verne)
