Copyright Assistance and Your GRCC Library

GRCC professors know that they must ensure US Copyright compliance as they populate and update learning materials in Blackboard, but they may not know that Department Liaison Librarians can help verify citations and help determine a copyright owner.  Liaison librarians can show you (and your departmental colleagues) how to create online linking solutions that are copyright compliant, and can guide you through the process of obtaining your copyright clearance online.   copyright symbol
