Welcome to my online guest lecture for LIBR 575. It's divided into five short video modules (plus a personal introduction and a conclusion). Some include supplementary readings for those wishing to dive deeper into the topic. Together, these will guide you through the copyright decision-making framework we apply in educational settings.
