Copyright issues pose many challenges for librarians. In an era when we rely increasingly on electronic materials while still making use of traditional resources, our picture of rights and responsibilities can get cloudy. In April’s American Libraries Live, a panel of experts will discuss challenges and offer strategies to help you navigate copyright in this rapidly evolving area. Please tune in Thursday, April 10 at 1 p.m. Central for this free, streaming video broadcast that you can view from your home, library or on-the-go.
The expert panel includes:
Rebecca Butler, author of Copyright for Teachers and Librarians in the 21st Century and Professor in the Department of Educational Technology, Research, and Assessment, College of Education, Northern Illinois University
Sandra Aya Enimil, Head of the Copyright Resources Center at The Ohio State University Library
Carrie Russell, , author of Complete Copyright for K–12 Librarians and Educators and Director, Program on Public Access to Information, ALA Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP)
Laura Quilter, Copyright and Information Policy Librarian at the UMass Amherst Libraries
Registration is not required, but if you are unable to attend the live event, registering is a good strategy. ALA will send you a link to the archived content, but if you have a burning question, consider attending live to get your question answered!
Tip: If you are in the K-12 world, please notice that you have representation on the panel to deal with K-12 issues, which can be slightly different.
