Last Wednesday around 50 copyright officers and librarians mainly from the higher education sector gathered at the University of Greenwich on one of the hottest days of the year to have an annual get together. The theme of the event was ‘Communicating the Copyright Message’ and the event, sponsored by the CILIP Information Literacy Group focused on copyright education: what works, what doesn’t and sharing good practice. Despite the heat, it was a great day, and an excellent opportunity for the copyright community to come together to share the approaches they are taking to educating others about copyright issues. There was a lively back chat on twitter using the #copyrightcomms16 and one delegate, Lizzie Sparrow attending remotely wrote a blog post on the day.
The programme was as follows and, with permission of the speakers we have shared presentations from the day below:
