Libraries and Copyright in the Digital Age
Event Date/Time: Jul 29, 2009
Copyright law affects the lives of faculty, scholars, researchers, and other library users today in unprecedented ways. Standard library activities, such as interlibrary loan, raise concerns for copyright holders, and yet the Copyright Act of 1976 recognized ILL as a legitimate library activity within certain parameters. The law is dated and libraries struggle to comply with its provisions while still serving their use communities.
Join leading copyright law expert Laura (Lolly) Gasaway to discuss Section 108 of the US Copyright Act, which applies to limitations and exclusive rights of digitization and reproduction of library materials and archives. In this session, we will address:
* Providing photocopies to users
* Providing digital copies to users
* Preserving analog works
* Licensing's impact on the library exceptions
* Interlibrary loan in the 21st century
Who should attend:
Librarians will learn how to identify policy issues and identify strategies for developing library policies that deal with digital issues and reproduction.
