Republished from our Opening Education site.
As part of the informal survey of institutions we did in early May (and supplemented by our own research) we gathered links to all of the Copyright education sites on campuses around B.C. I’m sharing these hoping they will be of some use:
Douglas College – http://guides.douglas.bc.ca/Copyright
ECUAD – http://www.ecuad.ca/copyright
Kwantlen – http://libguides.kwantlen.ca/copyright
Okanagan College – http://libguides.okanagan.bc.ca/copyright
UBC – http://copyright.ubc.ca/
In addition, because it is of particular interest to our deliberations around supporting copyright education/OER awareness, we looked further and pulled out URLs to the FAQs institutions have come up with for their instructors, staff and students:
JIBC – “Preparing Course Materials” – http://www.jibc.ca/library/services-faculty/copyright/preparing-course-materials
JIBC – Blacboard and copyright – http://www.jibc.ca/library/services-faculty/copyright/blackboard-digital-materials
JIBC – Digital Materials FAQs – http://www.jibc.ca/library/services-faculty/copyright/blackboard-digital-materials/digital-material-faqs
JIBC “General FAQ” – http://www.jibc.ca/library/services-faculty/copyright/copyright-basics
OC “Copyright in the Classroom” – http://libguides.okanagan.bc.ca/content.php?pid=179276&sid=1508288
OC “Licensing” – http://libguides.okanagan.bc.ca/content.php?pid=179276&sid=1508293
SFU FAQs (actually Access Copyright’s FAQs) – http://www.sfu.ca/archives/documents/cprt_faqs.pdf
SFU – making required readings available – http://www.lib.sfu.ca/my-library/services-for-you/required-readings
UVic Guides – http://www.uvic.ca/copyright/resources/faculty/index.php
VCC digital materials copyright questions- http://library.vcc.ca/research/research_copyright_digital.cfm
For now I will offer only one observation based on this research so far – copyright education is almost exclusively the domain of the institutional library, yet education on those library driven sites regarding “openness” is typically limited (with some notable exceptions) to “open access” (that is, access to academic journals, institutional repositories, etc) and NOT “open educational resources.” This seems like one gap that could be addressed.
Stay tuned for more to come as we mull through the replies and formulate some plans. If by chance your institution’s copyright site or FAQ was inadvertently left out, please feel free to add it in the comments (on the original post on our Opening Education site) or else email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
