On the Premises and Beyond! Managing Copyright Policy in the Library through Institutional and Technological Change.

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

We will discuss issues important to every library large and small - including the cheapest insurance you can buy, providing offsite access to library copies, and negotiating licenses with publishers to ensure that library resources are available where patrons interactions actually occur.

Libraries, librarians, and library staff are protected by a host of exceptions and copyright rules that are often not followed correctly (or at all!$. We will discuss easy, simple compliance with the laws protecting libraries from infringements made on the traditional library premises.

Further - the library’s work is increasingly off-site - virtual consultations, delivering materials off site - we’ll discuss different library models of delivering services and how copyright law can affect the depth and breadth of online services. What are “virtual library premises” and are they legal? What is distribution to the public - and how does offering limited access to digitized in-copyright collections affect library liability? Are library premises restricted to actual physical spaces or can we extend the concept of the reading room beyond the four walls of the traditional library? The answers affect every library - and their relationships with publishers - as we continue to manage the vast changes in services and material delivery that technological change has enabled.
