Do you understand copyright law? Do you really know if you can just right-click that image and use it in your own work?
The Libraries offers a hands-on workshop to answer those questions and more on Tuesday, March 13, 3-4 p.m. in the D. H. Hill Library Assembly Room (second floor). You’ll learn how to use images in your research legally and ethically, as well as the ways that the law supports scholarly use of images, from experts from the Design Library and the Copyright & Digital Scholarship Center. This workshop will increase your confidence and alleviate your fears when using images in your research and scholarship.
