Library and information science literature tells a story of the recent surge in creation the copyright librarian positions in academic libraries from identification of need to construction of job responsibilities and position requirements. This article seeks to continue the story by identifying what information materials and services the librarians responsible for providing copyright assistance have created at their libraries, and how those services are delivered to their institutions. An examination of 115 library websites is employed to identify topics and foci within copyright services with the goal of establishing commonalities of service among U.S. research 1 libraries that can be used to inform new service development.
