Worry no more. Attend this session and learn about Creative Commons – a service to help users locate images, audio and video clips that are available to the world with limited copyright restrictions. Whereas copyright requires you to ask permission, Creative Commons lets you know what permissions the creator has already granted when using his/her work. If you use a variety of media when creating documents, then this program is for you. Program Goals/Objectives: 1. Locate resources on Creative Commons and identify the license

2. Learn where to find creative commons licensed work: flickr, bliptv, etc.
3. Learn how to incorporate and cite a resource from Creative Commons into a presentation, website or blog. 4. Learn how to license their own creative works

However, we can also do this program using demonstrations. Program Logistics: Speaker Needs: none Equipment Needs: computer, projector, screen and internet connection. Preferred Date: N/A Other Special Requirements: None
