Copyright Office Announces Eighth Modernization Webinar
Issue No. 816 - April 10, 2020

The U.S. Copyright Office will host its eighth public modernization webinar on Thursday, April 30, 2020, at noon eastern time.

As part of its modernization efforts, the Copyright Office is using human-centered design to create new online applications for registration, recordation, and researching the public record. The user experience design team, based in the Library of Congress’ Office of the Chief Information Officer, conducts user research to design, test, and gather feedback on these applications. The team is currently designing these new online applications so they are easy-to-use, consistent, and accessible. In this webinar, the user experience design team will present how they apply iterative, human-centered design and user research methods and how these methods impact the copyright community. This is a follow-up to a webinar on user-centered design principals conducted on March 28, 2019.

Participants must register for this Copyright Office webinar. The Copyright Office launched its modernization webinar series on January 31, 2019.
