On Tuesday 7 January 2014 Stetson law librarian Ashley Chase gave a presentation on copyright and fair use in higher education and libraries. A PDF copy of her PowerPoint may be found below.
Below is a PDF file on copyright basics from the United States Copyright Office. This is a great primer on copyright.
Below is a link to a publication addendum MIT created for its faculty to help them retain copyright of their published articles. The form may be altered and submitted to publishers when an article is accepted for publicaiton. The publisher is under no obligation to accept the addendum, but it is always worth a try.
Some examples of the MIT addendum may be found here.
