Copyright for Health Information Professionals (2/2)
Relevant for anyone working in health information or health care, this course will provide a solid foundation in copyright principles. Participants will gain greater confidence answering common copyright questions and resolving potential copyright issues in their own use of information. You will learn how to reuse and share copyright-protected materials legally, identify and locate copyright friendly material made available under open licences. You will also learn about additional resources to deal with complex situations.

You will learn: 

1) Critically apply their understanding of copyright principles to address common scenarios encountered by health librarians and information professionals; 

2) Understand how to share content without infringing copyright; 

3) Identify “copyright friendly” material that is openly licensed for sharing and how to find it; and 

4) Refer to additional resources to deal with more complex cases.
