Copyright and Electronic Theses and Dissertations:

Do you plan to include third-party materials in your thesis or dissertation?  If so, do you need to request permission from the copyright holder or does it fall under the Fair Use exemption of the Copyright Law?  This session covers best practices and useful strategies to help make that determination, as well as how to protect the copyright of your own research.
