What exactly is a Creative Commons License?  How and when can you use one to distribute your work?  What are some of the things you should think about before you use one?  How can you find Creative Commons licensed material (images, texts, and many others) to use in your personal scholarship and teaching?  Join Rebecca Stuhr and Christine E. Weller, Esq. for an introduction to the Creative Commons licenses, a discussion of the difference between a license and an assignment, how scholars are using Creative Commons licenses to distribute their work, and how to find and responsibly use openly licensed materials in your scholarship and teaching

During this workshop attendees will:

  • See examples of works that include creative commons licenses  
  • Learn the different types of creative commons licenses available for use in connection with their scholarship
  • Understand how to decode Creative Commons licenses on third party works  
  • Learn about resources on finding openly licensed materials for re-use in their scholarship
