Academic librarians encounter copyright in many facets of their job, such as when answering reference questions, providing bibliographic instruction, and when pursuing digitization projects. In this 90-minute webinar we’ll explore how to identify copyright considerations when providing access to library services and resources and how to use the Framework for Analyzing any U.S. Copyright Problem to help ensure they are being addressed in compliance with the law. Webinar participants will be invited to share copyright questions and situations they have encountered in their jobs as a way of exploring the practical applications of the Framework.
