I had the honor of participating in Harvard's CopyrightX program in spring 2022. This course is beneificial particularly to librarians working in Resource Sharing, but is an incredibly informative course for anyone interested in US Copyright Law. The course is open to anyone over the age of 13 and is completely free, but space is limited. Over twelve weeks, participants will learn the history and current form of copyright law through weekly pre-recorded lectures, readings, and synchronous Zoom meetings. The only graded assignment is the final exam, which is required if you are striving for the certificate. Given the amount of information covered, the course is still generally well paced and easy to follow. This course is a wonderful professional development opportunity for anyone interested in copyright who has time for a more traditional course style.
