A 90-minute workshop with Mary Minow

Wednesday, February 6, 2013
2:30pm Eastern | 1:30 Central
12:30 Mountain | 11:30am Pacific

In this workshop Mary Minow, from LibraryLaw.com, will take you on a pragmatic journey through the law of e-books, cutting through the jargon to give straight answers to common questions. With an understanding of the legal underpinnings of library e-book lending, you’ll be able to plan an effective e-book strategy for your library. Among the topics to be explored:
• An introductory review of major e-book platform vendors and emerging library-based projects
• The implication of a recent court decision with regard to Fair Use
• What to look for in licensing language and provisions
Mary Minow is the Follett Chair at the Dominican School of Library and Information Sciences, Counsel to the Califa Group, and a library law consultant on issues of copyright, privacy, intellectual freedom and related access to information issues. Co-author with Tomas Lipinski of The Library’s Legal Answer Book, she has a J.D. from Stanford University and an M.L.S. from the University of Michigan.
