What we do

We provide expert guidance about copyright through consultations, workshops, presentations, and practical online resources — all with University of Michigan policies (SPGs) in mind to help you make informed decisions about publishing, dissertations, scholarly communication, and authors’ and artists’ rights. 

We work with departments; faculty; students; and archives, museums, and libraries across campus to offer a global perspective on cutting edge copyright questions — from digital preservation and scholarship to 3D printing. 

We support HathiTrust through policy and planning. 

We advocate for copyright laws that support the university community, working with the university’s offices of general counsel, and federal relations.
