Join the OSU Libraries’ Copyright Resources Center for weekly lunch & learn discussions to accompany the upcoming massive open online course (MOOC) “Copyright for Educators & Librarians.” The free online course is available on Coursera and will run from July 21-August 18. The OSU discussion group will meet each Thursday from 12-1pm for the duration of the course to review each week’s material and discuss any questions you might have. This is a great opportunity to review or learn for the first time about copyright issues and questions affecting teaching, libraries, and education.

The  “Copyright for Educators & Librarians” MOOC will be taught by Kevin Smith from Duke University, Anne Gilliland (formerly of OSU) from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, and Lisa Macklin from Emory University. Learn more about the course and sign up for the MOOC here:
