Who owns culture? An introduction to copyright for undergraduate students

We are excited to offer our next CopyTalk webinar about teaching undergraduates about copyright. Sounds like a tall order, but these undergraduates actually choose to take a semester-length copyright course as an elective.

Tammy Ravas will discuss her multidisciplinary approach to teaching copyright, outline the topics taught in the course, give examples of lesson plans, show general progress of students enrolled in the class, and share what worked and what did not.

Ravas is an Associate Professor of the Mansfield Library Faculty at the University of Montana where she serves as the Visual and Performing Arts Librarian. She received her BM in Music Education from the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam as well as her MLS and MA in Music History from SUNY at Buffalo as well as Level 1 Certification in Copyright Management and Leadership from the, now defunct, Center for Intellectual Property at the University of Maryland. Professor Ravas has presented papers and taught workshops about copyright at the state, national, and international levels.

This webinar is bound to be popular, so please sign into the Adobe Connect site early on Thursday, March 1 at 2 pm Eastern/11 am Pacific to secure a space. (Registration is capped at 100.)

As always, this webinar is free! Go to and sign in as a guest.

All of the CopyTalk webinars are archived here. This program is brought to you by the ALA Washington Office’s copyright education subcommittee.
