Copyright For Higher Education Professionals (Professional Qualifications Series) [Event Ref. No. TG1/QSJUN]


6:00 pm

Event Type

Please note that this event is also advertised in the ‘Professional Qualifications Support Workshops’ section of our events calendar.

cpd25’s programme of ten two-hour workshops is devised primarily to support CILIP Chartership and ACLIP candidates. However, many of the events in the programme are highly relevant to staff working as Library Assistants, Senior Library Assistants and so on. The events are aimed, therefore, at all levels of library staff – who may or may not be seeking Certification or Chartership, but who wish to further their professional skills and development.

Places are available on either the whole series (£160 for cpd25 members, £240 for external organisations) or for individual workshops (£30 for cpd25 members, £50 otherwise).

The event reference number for booking a place on the whole series is TG1/QSALL. Please refer to each workshop’s individual description for their individual event reference numbers.

Aims and Objectives:
Using copyright material legally even for educational purposes can be complicated. For example, permission or a licence is always required when sharing copyright material with multiple users, and further permission is required for dissemination via electronic means – e-mail, u-Link, intranets.

This session aims to break down the myths surrounding the use of copyright content for educational purposes and outline permitted uses of copyright material in relation to both the analogue and digital environments.

Through a presentation and interactive scenario-based session, participants will:

• develop an understanding of the principles of copyright and statutory exceptions for educational purposes and private research/study

• gain knowledge information on permitted uses of copyright material by staff and students under educational copyright licensing

• develop an awareness of the complexity of managing copyright in a digital environment and individual and institutional liability for copyright infringement

Participants will also have the opportunity to pose questions on copyright issues in general and receive guidance on best practice and are encouraged to bring questions based on real life issues for discussion.

Venue: Room LG39, Maughan Library, Kings College London;

Please note that there are limited places available for this event.

Cancellations less than one week before the event will be charged a 50% cancellation fee. In the event of a ‘no-show’ on the day, the full fee will be charged.
