Guide your institution to full compliance with its fair use and e-reserve legal obligations.
Even though institutions of higher education are the most significant users of copyrighted materials, their policies frequently fail to reflect current copyright frameworks. For fair use issues, your institution likely restrains its policies more than necessary out of fear of copyright infringement in the face of uncertainty. Conversely, the use of electronic reserves - and the untested legal issues they present - may well be creating potential copyright liability for your institution and your staff.
Join Academic Impressions in this two-part archived webcast designed to help you effectively guide your institution to full compliance with its fair use and e-reserve legal obligations.
Librarians, archivists, and staff responsible for the creation and enforcement of institutional copyright policy will leave this event with the knowledge they need to apply fair use doctrine and establish e-reserves policy.

Session 2: Copyright Considerations for e-reserves - participants will:
"Clear, concise and well paced presentation. Presenters were not only subject matter experts but engaging. Very few extraneous words in a meaty topic."

"The program provides a great foundation in the fair use dimensions of copyright law useful in faculty and staff development."
Dr. Rodney Vliet, Dean of Library and Media Services, Biola University (La Mirada, CA)
"We are training library staff to handle copyright management at our institution and this was a very thorough introduction to the concept of "fair use". We will use this information to compile our policies to share with faculty, staff, and students as we administer copyright on campus. The speakers were very clear and concise and gave pertinent, real-life examples."
Penny Cowan, Digital Systems Librarian, University of the South
"This provided an extremely valuable overview to the issues of Fair Use in a variety of venues. I recommend this to librarians and other educators involved with copyright and campus policies."
Jon Ritterbush, Electronic Resources Librarian, University of Nebraska-Kearney
