Title: Western Copyright Alliance (WCA): An Infomercial
Anali Perry, ASU Library / Head, Open Science & Scholarly Communication
Ellen Dubinsky, University of Arizona Scholarly Communication Librarian
In 2018, librarian-led communities in four states formed Copyright First Responders cohorts, with training led by founder Kyle Courtney. Since completing training, we recognized the benefit of forming broader networks across the western U.S. to better support our large and diverse populations. The Western Copyright Alliance (WCA) was born! Composed of CFR Pacific Northwest, California, and Arizona, the WCA is poised to extend copyright education across the entire western region. Our plans involve sharing resources and our expertise to provide training, build communities of practice, and create a network of experts.
- Benefits of Copyright First Responders training for all library staff
- Plans for building a strong, western states community of copyright-literate practitioners
- How to get involved in WCA
