Copyright Training with Naomi Korn

This event has already taken place. View upcoming events

We asked what training courses our members wanted to hold in the region, and copyright came back as a very popular choice. So, we have asked copyright expert and professional trainer Naomi Korn to come up to Leeds and deliver a course on copyright, aimed specifically at librarians.

The course will include a good mix of practical exercises to help develop your own problem-solving and evaluative skills to apply to copyright questions, and will have an extra focus on what Brexit might mean for how copyrighted works are protected.
