Fair Use in Your Library after Georgia State

ACRL e-Learning webcast – “Fair Use in Your Library after Georgia State”
Tuesday, December 4, 2012
1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Central

Register now for the ACRL e-Learning webcast, “Fair Use in Your Library after Georgia State,” to be offered Tuesday, December 4 (1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Central time).  This live, interactive webcast will examine how the recent federal court decision involving copyright and the Georgia State University Library may shape fair use policies in academic libraries for decades.  A lower-court judge ruled that the Georgia State University Library was the “prevailing party” in a lawsuit brought by Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, and Sage Publications. The publishers have appealed that ruling. What does this all mean, and what does it mean for your library?  During the webcast, copyright librarians and lawyers will explore and dissect the court’s framework using specific examples from the case in order to explain the ruling of the case, the effect that the case may have on future fair use analyses, and its impact on library policies such as course reserves and interlibrary loan.  Bring questions about fair use in your library!

Presenters: Dwayne K. Buttler, J.D., Professor, University Libraries, Evelyn J. Schneider Endowed Chair for Scholarly Communication, University of Louisville; Donna Ferullo, Director of the University Copyright Office and Associate Professor of Library Science, Purdue University; Tim Gritten, Assistant Director of Libraries for User Services, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Complete details including the full webcast description, learning outcomes, and registration materials are available online.  Contact Margot Conahan at mconahan@ala.org or call (312) 280-2522 with questions.

New ACRL/TLT Online Literacy Workshops

via ACRL Insider

ACRL and the TLT Group are co-sponsoring three online information literacy workshops this fall. The latest ACRL/ TLT Group online information literacy workshop, Best Practices in Information Literacy in Undergraduate Education, is scheduled for October 13, 20, and 27, 2010. Each session begins at 2 p.m. EST, and lasts 60 minutes.

For the past several years, workshop leaders Susan Ariew and Ilene Frank, along with members of the ACRL’s Institute for Information Literacy’s Best Practices Project Team, have been working with colleagues in the field on criteria for developing, assessing, and improving information literacy programs in undergraduate education; and identifying categories and case studies of best practices in undergraduate information literacy programs.

This workshop will introduce a variety of related resources, present the findings of the Best Practices team, describe key elements of model programs, invite feedback and discussion, and engage participants in activities to help them reflect on their own teaching practices, as well as advance the work of their own Information Literacy Programs.

Complete details and registration information is available on the TLT Group Web site. Visit the ACRL e-learning site for complete details on ACRL e-learning opportunities.

ACRL/NY Annual Symposium

Innovation by Design: Revisioning the Library — Friday, December 10, 2010

Design impacts everything we do.  What does this mean for libraries? Design comes into play as we craft our collections, create instruction programs, construct user-centered websites, renovate buildings, and redesign our policies.  It mediates our information-seeking behavior, connects us with both students and faculty, and influences our interactions with our physical environment.  This year’s symposium looks at design in academic libraries from four very different perspectives.  Come join the conversation.
