CopyTalk Webinar – Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Open Educational Resources

According to ACRL Insider those who are interested can “Join the ALA Copyright, Legislation, Education, and Advocacy Network (CLEAN) for a free CopyTalk webinar at 2:00 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, March 4.

“Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Open Educational Resources” is built on a series of workshops, interviews, and webinars that were conducted over the course of 2019 and 2020. It is intended to support authors, teachers, professors, librarians, and all open educators in evaluating when and how they can incorporate third party copyright materials into Open Educational Resources to meet their pedagogical goals. As teachers are making an emergency shift to online education, one component of that struggle is navigating concerns around copyright when finding digital teaching materials.

The speakers will be Peter Jaszi and Meredith Jacobs from the Washington College of Law and Will Cross from North Carolina State University Libraries.

To attend, simply join the webinar on March 4, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. A recording of the webinar will also be freely available after the presentation on the CopyTalk archive page.

Licensing E-Resources: Is your Publisher a Preservationist? (NASIG webinar)

Date: March 18, 2021
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM (ET)


Electronic resources have their own inherent complications, and this is particularly true at the licensing stage. Without careful planning, an institution may find themselves facing unexpected content loss after a subscription cancellation, a title cessation, or publisher shutdown. In this webinar, Michelle Polchow, Electronic Resources Librarian at UC Davis and James Phillpotts, Director of Digital Operations Innovation at Oxford University Press, will share their insights and best practices for licensing for both parties. Their perspectives will advise on the necessary steps that librarians should take before and during licensing to fully understand entitlements, as well as ways that publishers can commit to digital preservation in licensing terms to prevent possible content loss. 

Who should attend:  

Librarians with beginning knowledge of licensing and an interest in or responsibility for the preservation/management of digital content. Early career librarians and library students are encouraged to attend.  


  • James Phillpotts, Oxford University Press  
  • Michelle Polchow, University of California, Davis
