On the 5th Day of Copyright Christmas…

On the fifth day of Copyright Christmas, my true love gave to me: five new information sheets from the Australian Copyright Council (ACC), four steps for using Readings Online self servicethree copyright news articles,  two quick and easy ways to get my subject readings ready for 2017 and 1 copyright compliant video on Youtube.

Back in October, we posted about the ACC’s ebooks to which the Library has a subscription for staff and students.  In addition to ebooks, the ACC also publishes Information Sheets on a wide range of copyright matters.  The Information Sheets are freely available via the ACC’s website and are a great source of information.  They are a great supplement to the ebooks or for topics that are not big enough for an ebook.  The Information Sheets also complement the information available from our own website and address topics that we may not have covered in detail.

Recently, the ACC have released five new information sheets:

Design Objects and Copyright

Educational Institutions and Libraries: Using Book Covers

Fanfiction and Copyright

Thumbnails Images

The Marrakesh Treaty (to Facilitate Access to Published Works for Persons Who Are Blind, Visually Impaired or Otherwise Print Disabled)

All of these resources can be downloaded for free from the ACC website (and make great holiday reading!!)

You can also see the complete list of ACC information sheets on the ACC website.
