Using Public Domain Materials in Your Teaching and Research

Submitted by Kathy Yoder, yoder.332@osu.edu

On January 1, 2020, new works entered the public domain in the United States. What’s special about the public domain? Free of copyright restrictions, public domain materials can be freely copied, shared, and remixed by students, instructors, and researchers. Join University Libraries’ Copyright Services for part one of a workshop series on the public domain. This session will provide an introduction to identifying, finding, and using public domain materials for your teaching, research, and other creative activities. Please bring your questions!
