The Harvard Library Copyright Advisor program was established in 2014 to create a culture of shared understanding of copyright among Harvard faculty, students, and staff in support of pedagogy, research, and innovation.
This site, which will serve as a clearinghouse of resources created by the Copyright Advisor, Copyright First Responders, and Copyright Fellows, is intended to help meet this program's mission by providing information and educational resources for Harvard University and beyond about fair use, publishing and licensing, state copyright laws, and more.
Harvard's Copyright Advisor is made possible by generous support from the Arcadia Fund.
