Booklet: Campus Copyright Rights and Responsibilities: A Basic Guide to Policy Considerations

This 30-page booklet was developed by representatives of the Association of American Universities, the Association of Research Libraries, the Association of American University Presses, and the Association of American Publishers. It covers topics such as:
  • What is copyright
  • The public domain
  • Licenses
  • The TEACH Act
  • Coursepacks
  • Electronic Reserves
...and much more.

The goal of the work is to lay the groundwork for institutions to develop their own policies. Looks like it does a good job of communicating the basics so that necessary conversations can begin.
