Workshop: Navigating Copyright as We Build the Digital Future

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Librarians encounter copyright questions on a regular basis, whether it’s in relation to digitization of collections, course reserves, clauses referring to copyright terms in license agreements, or questions from patrons. Navigating through these questions can be a challenge, but is not impossible. This workshop will focus on three main areas of the application of copyright law by librarians: fair use, libraries and archives exception in US Copyright Law, and the intersection of copyright and contracts. The workshop will include small groups working through scenarios often encountered by librarians.
