Emerging Trends Lecture Series: Copyright in the Online Environment and Ares Course Reserves

Dear Faculty,

Please join us for an informative session on copyright and a new way to request reserves from within Blackboard.

Copyright in the Online Environment and Ares Course Reserves
Friday, February 3
10:00 am – 11:00 am
Kiva, Farish Hall

Presented by: Ashley Lierman, Assistant Librarian and Nora Dethloff, Associate Librarian, UH University Libraries.

Do you ever worry about potential copyright risks when posting digital materials for students in Blackboard? Join librarians from the UH Libraries' Copyright Team for a discussion on how tools provided by the Libraries, particularly the Ares Course Reserves System, can help you negotiate and minimize those risks. They will also provide general information on your rights and responsibilities as an educator regarding copyright issues in online learning management systems.
