2015 UCCS Copyright Conference

Librarians are constantly confronted with copyright questions and issues in the routine execution of their duties. The UCCS Copyright Conference offers public, academic, special, and school librarians the opportunity to learn about U.S. Copyright Law and how it impacts the services we offer our patrons. Conference participants will develop a better understanding of the law and learn how to balance the rights of authors and creators with the needs of our patrons.

We are excited to welcome back Dr. Kenneth D. Crews as our featured speaker!

This year we will also be joined by Kevin Smith, who is the Director of the Office of Copyright and Scholarly Communications at Duke University and author of the popular Scholarly Communications @ Duke blog. 

At this years conference we'll be taking a closer look at...

  • How to identify copyright issues at your insitution
  • The resources available to help you address and resolve copyright issues and problems.

Our afternoon break-out sessions will explore copyright issues specific to academic, K-12, and public libraries as well as topics relevant to archives and institutional repositories. There will also be a special session for library and campus administrators.

Thanks to the generous support of our conference sponsors registration for this years' conference is once again free!
