This session was great intro to posing questions and creating an argument for "fair use" of previously published texts, images, etc. in class (and research). If there is some such thing, I would be interested in and "advanced" session at some point.

Having never attended a talk on fair use, this was very helpful. Leaders discussed well the criteria for determining fair use, and for documenting your intentions/use to show "good intent" or "good faith" if use were questioned legally. Also, I was not aware of Lib Guides that the library has on the subject, which provide reference material.
