Introducing a new blog series from your Clayton State University Library; Take Care Before You Share, which focuses on issues related to copyright, fair use, and academic integrity, is inspired by Fair Use Week 2015.
Sponsored by the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), Fair Use Week honors the, “doctrine of fair use and the important role this limitation on copyright plays in achieving the Constitutional purpose of intellectual property rights: to promote the progress of science and the useful arts.”
The scope of fair use, copyright, and intellectual property, though, is too broad to cover in one week, so we will continue this conversation throughout the academic year, because, like the ARL, we believe that every week is Fair Use Week. Our first post focuses on digital content in the classroom, such as sharing electronic content on D2L. In the future, we will discuss other topics related to copyright, fair use, plagiarism, and academic integrity as they relate to the classroom, both face-to-face and online.
The first issue is available at
