Published on

A brief overview of Creative Commons licenses. This definitely won't tell you everything (for that, head over to, but it will help you to get started. This talk was given on February 2, 2015 as an Ignite Session at ALA Midwinter 2015 (

The original description: "Are you wondering what "Creative Commons" means? Are you having a hard time understanding the differences between the types of licenses? Would you like to help your patrons and colleagues find content that is freely available for reuse without copyright concerns? Would you like to learn how to license your own materials under these terms? This talk will give you a crash course on Creative Commons terminology and will provide you with resources for incorporating these topics and materials into your work at any type of library."
