Finding (Legally Safe) Graphics for Presentations and Websites
Wednesday, December 10, 2008
It's 9 a.m. and your deadline is today to put together your presentation or post your content to the library's blog or website. A picture of kids making paper boats would add just the right visual to your text. As an excellent online searcher, you can easily find what you need. But do you have the right to use it? Are you exposing your library to copyright liability?
This webinar will help you analyze the legal rights attached to images you find online and offline. It will walk you through safer approaches to using the pictures you need to make your content sparkle!
At the end of this presentation, participants will know how to:
- Locate public domain images that are free to use
- Locate creative commons licensed images and understand the conditions attached to using them
- Ask for permission to use other images
Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.
