New Copyright Advisory Office a valuable resource for Queen's
A new Copyright Advisory Office (CAO) will help educate, support, and engage Queen’s faculty, students and staff in understanding copyright as it pertains to accessing information, learning, teaching, and research.
“The office will be a fantastic resource for members of the Queen’s community as we implement the new Copyright at Queen's Policy and address new developments in the copyright landscape,” says Martha Whitehead, University Librarian. “We want to ensure that people are aware of all the options for using information resources, as well as any restrictions.”
Mark Swartz, Queen’s newly-appointed copyright specialist, will work with instructors, faculty, staff and librarians across the campus to develop web-based information and educational programs on copyright. He will also monitor copyright developments, provide advice in response to questions, and consult with instructors, researchers and learners. Mr. Swartz will facilitate dialogue across campus and externally on issues relating to copyright and its application in the university.
