This video is of the “Copyright, Licensing, Open Access” session from the 18-19 March 2013 “MOOCs and Libraries: Massive Opportunity or Overwhelming Challenge?” event hosted by OCLC Research and the University of Pennsylvania Libraries. As courses are being offered online to a diverse and geographically distributed audience, what are the challenges for licensing and clearing copyright for materials used in courses? Are there opportunities for advancing the conversation on open access with faculty? Featuring Brandon Butler, Director of Public Policy Initiatives, Association of Research Libraries; Kevin Smith, Scholarly Communications Officer, Duke University; Kenny Crews, Director, Copyright Advisory Office, Columbia University; and Kyle K. Courtney, Manager of Faculty Research and Scholarship, Harvard Law School. See the MOOCs and Libraries event page athttp://www.oclc.org/research/events/2… for a complete overview of this event.
