As educators, researchers, librarians, and students, many of our readers are continually on the lookout for the best ways to share and build upon curriculum components and other educational materials. Central to this inquiry are the nuanced, and often complicated, legal protections, doctrines, and practices that support Intellectual Property (IP) rights. In this special edition of the Scout Report we’ve collected and annotated fifteen high-quality resources that may help shine some light in this area. From determining a document’s reusability to explaining Creative Commons, we hope this collection of resources will be both informative and thought provoking.
