Developing IR collections often prompts questions from faculty about copyright, permissions, and authors’ rights. As part of the scholarly communication initiatives at Utah State, the team at Quinney Natural Resources Library has developed a successful authors’ rights education program. In the process, they have been able to promote the institutional repository as a solution to access and authors' rights issues.

In this webinar, Betty Rozum (Associate Dean for Technical Services) and Jennifer Duncan (Head of Collection Development ) detail their experience and share strategies for educating authors about their rights and integrating awareness of copyright issues into faculty’s research practices.
