The University of California Copyright Education
Web Site is a direct outgrowth of the
University Standing Committee on Copyright's continuing commitment
to improve the quality and delivery of copyright information, education,
and support services available to the UC community.
The site was created to respond to educators' and
scholars' needs for information on copyright policies and laws,
and how to apply them to academic and scholarly work. The information
provided here is intended to educate the larger UC community about
education-related copyright issues.
To find out about policies and regulations concerning the use of electronic resources, including information

Copyright Protection at the University of California" from
the Office of Information Resources
and Communications (IR&C).

Much of the credit for this site goes
to Consulting Editor Susan Lessick, Head Librarian at UC Irvine's
Grunigen Medical Library and copyright connoisseur. Susan
collected, compiled, organized and wrote the majority of the
content for the site.
