Slides from a presentation, "Reuse, Remix, and Create with the Creative Commons," offered at the University of Rhode Island Libraries on February 22 and March 5, 2019.

"What are Creative Commons licenses and how do they work? What is the difference between something that is free online and something that is truly 'open'? Did you know that it is often a Creative Commons license that puts the 'open' in Open Access scholarship and Open Educational Resources? Whether you are an author or creator who wants to share your work more openly than the default 'all rights reserved' of copyright or you are someone who wants to reuse content created by others (or both!), attend this Search Savvy Seminar. You will learn about the six Creative Commons licenses, how to apply a CC license to your own work, how to search for openly-licensed works online, and how to reuse, remix, and properly attribute CC-licensed works created by others. Presented by Andrée Rathemacher, Professor, Head of Acquisitions, University Libraries."

Part of the University Libraries' Search Savvy Seminar series.
