Abstract

Today librarians, archivists, and other information professionals can hardly escape the conundrum of intellectual property law and licensing. As our work increasingly encompasses copyright-intensive programs and projects, questions arise about topics such as fair use, e-media, digitization, licensing, and, of course, risk. During the height of the pandemic, these long-discussed issues about modern access to library collections came to the forefront. Fortunately, there is a careful balance outlined in the law between copyright and access. And there are several exceptions that can serve as the beginning of robust policy that utilizes these exceptions to increase access. Knowledge of these exceptions can help mitigate risk for institutions. Join Kyle K. Courtney for an interactive workshop exploring some of these critical copyright exceptions underlying these topics, the impact with licensing, and other critical aspects of modern library access.
