Every year the ALCC runs a series of training courses across Australia. This training aims to arm librarians and archivists with the knowledge and skills to tackle copyright in their institutions. 

The sessions are run by the ALCC Copyright and Policy Adviser and usually consist of two half day sessions. Each is aimed at attendees with different levels of knowledge and experience, and are designed to work as discrete sessions or as a single full-day copyright primer.  These sessions are:

  1. Copyright Essentials (morning) - intended for those who want to learn or brush up on their copyright basics.

  2. Copyright Extended (afternoon) - looks at latest updates and copyright practices and assumes either a base knowledge of copyright or attendance at the morning session. 

Where time permits, we also include a Hot Topics Panel, talking with local experts in an indepth manner about what is important in copyright in Australia and worldwide.


The training is free for ALCC member organisations and their employees. It is also open to non-members; however a small price is charged.
