Image Copyright and Acquisition for Scholars

Image Copyright and Acquisition for Scholars

Visual literacy standards and the law are necessary for nearly every humanities and social-sciences project. This workshop addresses two aspects of image use in scholarship. The first part of the class examines techniques in obtaining scholarly images (what a scholarly image is, determining original resolution, searching free- and free-to-use images for scholarly research, and when you should pay). The second part is a brief course on image copyright and intellectual property--both the scholar’s and the user’s rights and how each can be asserted. Relevant case history examples will be cited to back up a scholar’s use of images. Designed for humanities and social-science disciplines whether they are images made from personal archive research or from the internet.
