The NMSU Library made considerable progress during 2009 on a copyright initiative that it has been working on for several years. A new email question/answer service, firstname.lastname@example.org, was launched last summer. During Fall Semester, the Library developed a “Copyright Essentials” guide for the NMSU community.
The guide, available at http://nmsu.edu/copyright, covers topics such as how copyright works, fair use, face-to-face and distance education classroom issues, seeking permission and open source/open access resources. Intended to be a dynamic resource, the guide will continue to be developed in response to emerging issues and questions. The Library is grateful to colleagues in NMSU’s Center for Learning and Professional Development, Information & Communication Technologies and General Counsel for their assistance and support in creating this new resource.
NMSU departments and other groups who would like additional information or custom presentations may email Library department heads Norice Lee or Cindy Pierard at email@example.com.
