LORI Resource Sharing Working Group: Copyright First Responders Rhode Island

About CFR

The Copyright First Responders (CFR) program trains librarians, archivists, museum staff, and other cultural institutional employees in an immersive-style program emphasizing practical copyright law.  The CFR program empowers the individual CFR participant to develop a shared understanding of copyright in teaching, learning, and scholarship, in their own communities.
The program is led by Kyle K. Courtney who is the Copyright Advisor for Harvard University, working out of the Office for Scholarly Communication. His “Copyright First Responders” initiative is in its 9th year at Harvard, and he runs a parallel national network that has spread the program to libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural institutions in Alaska, Arizona, California, New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Washington.
