A solid understanding of copyright as it applies to archival materials can be invaluable when it comes to navigating the process of research, writing, and publishing. At this program, UCSC’s Scholarly Communication Librarian Martha Stuit will be joined by Katie Fortney (of the California Digital Library) to talk about ways to add copyright knowledge to your researcher skill set. Come with your own questions or topics of concern to add to the discussion.
