Copyright law affects library users today in unprecedented ways. Standard library activities, such as interlibrary loan and preservation copying, raise concerns for copyright holders, and yet the Copyright Act of 1976 recognized these as legitimate library activities — within certain parameters. The law has become dated as technology has advanced, and libraries now struggle to comply with its provisions while still serving their user communities.
Join us online for a two-part webcast as our expert instructors discuss the limitations and exclusive rights of the Copyright Act that apply to digitization and reproduction of library materials and archives, as well as the new challenges for libraries with emerging technologies.
We will use case studies throughout the program to help you test your knowledge and apply the concepts you're learning. You may register for one or both sessions in this series.
