Are you working on a project that uses images, sounds, videos, or other media? Do you want to learn more about how to find copyright-free media that you can use in your project? Come to the library on Thursday, December 3 from 4:00 to 4:30 for our Copyright Workshop led by Lynne Riley, Research & Instruction Librarian.
Since WPI Interactive Qualifying Projects (IQPs), Major Qualifying Projects (MQPs), theses, and dissertations are now published online and often distributed to a sponsor, it is very important to pay close attention to copyright law. This workshop will address questions such as:
- Can I copy an image from a commercial Web site?
- How do I find free-to-use images?
- May I use a chart or table from an article in my MQP, IQP, thesis, or dissertation?
- Do I own the copyright to my MQP, IQP, Sufficiency, Thesis, or Dissertation?
For online projects, it is not enough to simply cite your source with a citation; copyright permissions are required for works under copyright protection. This workshop will explain basic copyright as it relates to your project, as well as show you how to find free-to-use images and other resources for your project work.
