Copyright Crash Course, created by Georgia Harper, the Scholarly Communications Advisor for the University of Texas at Austin Libraries and former Senior Attorney and manager of the Intellectual Property Section of the Office of General Counsel for the University of Texas System.

This course is a professional development opportunity designed to provide a basic introduction to US copyright law and to empower teachers and librarians at all grade levels. Course participants will discover that the law is designed to help educators and librarians.
