. Providing educational programs and general advice on copyright
. Providing a centralized service for obtaining clearance for
the use of copyrighted materials.

and encouraging appropriate practices.
. Assisting with the posting of materials to electronic learning
Ms. Juliette Nadeau has been selected as the University's Copyright Officer
and will head the new office. Juliette can be contacted at 474-8644, or
General inquires, clearance requests, and requests for educational
programing may be sent to um_copyright(a)umanitoba.ca.
