University Libraries WorkshopWhen is it o.k. to use an image in a paper, thesis, artwork, or creative project, and when do you need to seek permission from the copyright holder? How do you cite an image? In this workshop we’ll define “public domain” and “Creative Commons,” discuss what counts as fair use, and describe best practices for image captions. We’ll also highlight online collections where you can find high quality photography and images that are free to use.

Since 1959, The Writing Center has supported writers at Ball State. While our center is most well-known for our free, peer tutoring services, we also educate through workshops, presentations, writing communities, studio space, and online resources for writers. Additionally, we build relationships across campus to promote writing, and one of our most significant partnerships is with Ball State University Libraries. This presentation will discuss that unique partnership, which unites writing and research on campus. It’s our philosophy that all writers improve with practice and feedback, and now writers can get writing and research support in one location.
5 p.m.
