Registration is now closed for this event
In this workshop, facilitated by Ann Ludbrook, Copyright Librarian, and Michelle Schwartz, Research Associate for the LTO, we will highlight freely available course materials, textbooks, data sets, and multimedia. The new fair dealing exceptions to the Copyright Act, in combination with Creative Commons material, public domain historical material, and open access books and journals, means that there is more content open for the taking than ever before. Learn where you can find free images for your PowerPoints and free textbooks for your classes! We will be providing participants with tips, resources, and information on library services available to reduce the work required to put together course readings.
