Dr. Ken Crews, founding director of the Copyright Advisory Office at Columbia University, will conduct two interactive forums titled "What Copyright Means to You" at Seminole State College of Florida on Friday, Sept. 28. The forums will focus on recent developments in Fair Use and how it applies to higher education.
The morning session from 9 a.m.-noon will cover the broader interest of copyright use for individuals in their own work, Fair Use applications for online and classroom instruction, use of DVD and media, music, publishing and more. Time will be provided for attendee questions on the use of various materials, media remix, copying and more.
The afternoon session from 1 - 3:30 p.m. will address research, course reserves and interlibrary loan, and conclude with discussion for those responsible for making decisions dealing with copyright.
Both sessions will be held in the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus Multipurpose Room (C-110) and broadcast to the Altamonte Springs Campus (ALT-214) and the Oviedo Campus (OVF-104). The sessions are open to everyone. However, these sessions are of special interest to faculty and staff. Employees who attend will receive professional development credit.
The event is sponsored by the Seminole State Library. For more information, contact Patricia DeSalvo, dean of libraries and learning technology, at 407.708.2136.
