Image Copyright Best Practices
Sonja Sekely-Rowland (History of Art, UC Riverside)

The Image Resource Center is pleased to announce our first event of 2021-22. Please join us for a presentation on Image Copyright Best Practices with Sonja Sekeley-Rowland on October 15 at 11:00. Sonja will join us via Zoom, and will give an overview of recent copyright and IP issues including a definition and brief history of copyright; clarification of Fair Use and public domain; and provide a framework for copyright analysis. These tools will ultimately help provide a roadmap for answering your questions about image use in your thesis, dissertation, and other publications.
