Updated Univ. of California website puts answers to copyright questions at your fingertips

An updated and revised UC Copyright Website was quietly launched in mid-February and has been publicly announced on the UCnet website at: http://ucnet.universityofcalifornia.edu/news/2014/03/updated-website-puts-answers-to-copyright-questions-at-your-fingertips.html .  This revised site will be very helpful in working with faculty on the subject of copyright.

The new look and feel is aligned with the UCnet “brand,” and has clearer navigation and a more welcoming and accessible format than the previous version, which was 10 years old. The pages were edited for clarity and web-based reading, and to help users get to the information they need.  Based on comments from around the UC community, more information will be added to the site in the near future, including help with interpreting UC’s Copyright Ownership Policy.  Other changes and additions can easily be made with the new format and new content management system.

The site is the responsibility of the Systemwide Library and Scholarly Information Advisory Committee (SLASIAC) and its Standing Subcommittee on Copyright Policy.
