With the winter term quickly approaching, it is a busy time getting course readings ready in Brightspace and Blackboard. Given some of the recent copyright changes here at Dalhousie, We’d like to remind you how this can be done in a manner that is respectful of Canadian copyright law, and Dalhousie’s Fair Dealing Guidelines: http://www.dal.ca/dept/copyrightoffice/guidelines/fair-dealing-guidelines.html
If you wish to upload materials yourself into Brightspace/Blackboard, we’ve made it easy to figure out if what you want to put online is copyright compliant. Libraries staff have put together a short video tutorial which explains Dalhousie’s Fair Dealing Guidelines, and will provide you with guidance when it comes to making sure your materials are copyright compliant. Check it out here: http://libcasts.library.dal.ca/Copyright_and_Brightspace/
Thank you for helping foster sustainable and ethical copying practices at Dalhousie!
