Sara Brylowski, 2019 Showcase
The Copyright Toolkit and Asset Sources pages, along with the embedded Copyright Timeline, display an assemblage of resources that can help inform the navigation of copyright concerns and rights assessments for both copyright novices and seasoned professionals. This collection was created for the Digital Copyright course INFO 281 at the SJSU iSchool and represents both materials introduced in the course and materials I have found useful in my professional life. The annotated list of resources is designed to inform the user as they investigate the facets of each unique media type and use-case, and is searchable and sortable with filtering options so the user can personalize their interaction with the materials. The copyright timeline reflects major legislation and litigation that have impacted copyright law, and each event on the timeline is clickable, revealing a brief statement describing the change that resulted from that event and a link to more information.
