Copyright and Fair Use in the Classroom

Copyright raises many questions: What can I use freely? When do I need to get permission? How do I protect my intellectual property? This workshop will provide an overview of U.S. copyright law in the academic setting and point the way to resources that help in making decisions and knowing when to seek legal advice.

How to Fact-Check and Verify the News

It is your responsibility as a news consumer to be critical and skeptical. This session will share fact-checking and verification techniques to assist you in determining whether what you are reading online is fact or fake.

Open Educational Resources

Are your students struggling with the cost of course materials? Would you like the freedom and flexibility to customize the content of textbooks and other learning objects to better align with your lessons and assignments? Open educational resources, or OER, are free, openly licensed educational materials that provide alternatives to traditional textbooks. Learn more about campus resources that can help you find, create, and use high-quality OER.

We’ll provide an overview of our collections and cover strategies for using Special Collections in class visits, undergraduate assignments, and your own research.
