Welcome to this guide to copyright at James Madison University. The guide contains information and links to resources about copyright in the context of teaching (including online instruction) and scholarship. Additionally, you will find links to JMU licensed resources and freely available resources which you may wish to use in your work, scholarship, or creative endeavors. Lastly, the guide links to relevant institutional forms and policies related to copyright and intellectual property for members of the JMU community, and information about authors' rights.
The guide is maintained by Howard S. Carrier, Copyright Librarian in JMU Libraries. I shall be pleased to meet or correspond with any JMU community member to discuss copyright issues, or to provide workshops or classroom based / online instruction on this topic. To request such assistance, please contact me via the contact information provided at the Request Assistance section of this guide.
