MANAGING COPYRIGHT IN THE DIGITAL AGE
Sponsored by BNA, Inc. and Dialog, LLC.
Do you struggle to understand what you, your library staff, and your users may do under the U.S. Copyright Act? Do you understand the gray areas of Fair Use and the Library Exemption? Do you need help interpreting and negotiating terms of copyright in contracts for electronic resources? Do you try to educate your patrons about copyright and create guidelines they can understand?
If so, join us for this webinar on Tuesday, December 7, 2010 from 1:00 – 2:30 PM Eastern Time. James Heller, author of The Librarian's Copyright Companion, and Christine Graesser, a law librarian with 20+ years of experience in firm and government law libraries, will outline the basics of copyright law and offer tips on copyright compliance, licensing, and user education within your organization.
