Few things are as opaque but vitally important than intellectual property—especially in the increasing digital age in which we live, teach, and write. The Framers of the Constitution granted Congress the ability to secure “for Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their Respective Writings and Discoveries.”

Terri Bell, Sr. Library Assistant/Copyright Compliance, will join us to consider what your need to know about intellectual property for your writing and what “Writings and Discoveries” mean for your field.

This workshop will be available via video teleconference on all five campuses.
