Description

A virtual talk will be given by Dorothea Salo, a Faculty Associate in the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Current national and international copyright practices have the potential to devastate libraries as we know them. Widely-accepted practices, such as First Sale, Section 108 (the library “fair use” code), electronic reserves, interlibrary loan, electronic-book and e-journal lending are all under legal threat. Digitization of library-owned materials presents additional challenges, as does the technology sometimes used in the name of enforcing copyright. This Open Access Week, learn to recognize these threats and what we can all do about them.
