BC Institutional Copyright Education Sites

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:

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 sleslie@bccampus.ca.
