Copyright and IDD work

A few people have asked about using copyrighted materials. The general consensus is that even though this is a student/college setting, we need to observe copyrights law, especially since our work is displayed on the internet. In general, unless the image you want to use is 72+ years old, your image(s) need to fall into these categories:

a. Obtain permission (this is often lengthy, tedious and may require $$)
b. Use copyright/royalty free images
c. Make your own images (drawing, photos etc).

Excellent sources for stock imagery and public domain information are:

The Stock Exchange

Center for the Public Domain

LAB HOURS Fall 05

There's been some confusion as to the lab hours and access with Q cards.
Please note that the lab hours are:

M-TH: 7am-9am 5:30-6:30pm 9pm-2am
F: 7am-9am 2:30pm-2am
Sat & Sun: 7am-2am

These are the hours you may use your Q Card to access the lab. Do not let other students into the lab!

If the alarm is activated during the lab hours, you may contact security. If it is outside lab hours, DO NOT CALL security.

There are several Macs on the second floor of the Library that are set up the same as the lab - these are available during all Library hours and for IDD use.

There are also a couple of Macs in Media Services that are set up as well - these are available during media services hours.
