The Copyright Commons at Southern Miss will hopefully be a tool that you’ll find yourself using over and over again!  This page was designed to bring awareness to ongoing copyright education initiatives while providing a platform for the campus community to get answers to their copyright related questions, schedule a workshop/consultation, or find resources to further their copyright knowledge.

There are two main sections of the Copyright Commons.  The Copyright Resources section includes tools to guide you in making decisions on usage and compliance with copyright law. The Copyright Education section helps you in learning the basics of copyright law, fair use, and plagiarism.

If you are interested in a workshop or consultation, please contact us using the request form provided!
