ACRL New England Chapter Scholarly Communication Interest Group Fall Program
The ARL Code of Best Practices and Beyond: Copyright and Fair Use on Your Campus
When: Tuesday, December 4, 2012
Where: UMass Medical Hoagland-Pincus Conference Center, Shrewsbury, MA
Come hear from two attorneys about how to apply the ARL Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries, and how to speak with lawyers at your institution.
Please join us for a day with:
- Brandon Butler, Director of Public Policy Initiatives at ARL, who will delve into the details of the ARL Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries, placing it in the context of recent legal cases, including the GSU and HathiTrust rulings, and discuss its relevance for institutions of all sizes.
- Laura Quilter, Copyright and Information Policy Librarian at UMass Amherst, who will provide brief updates on activities at the Copyright Office, and focus, with a panel, on talking with your school’s attorneys or legal office on copyright and fair use issues. The goal is to provide attendees with a toolkit of helpful resources they can take back to their libraries. Laura will be joined by two panelists: Hillary Corbett, Scholarly Communication Librarian at Northeastern University, and Ellen Duranceau, Program Manager, Scholarly Publishing and Licensing, MIT.
We’ll finish up with a few updates from the Scholarly Communication field, and a review of Open Access Week activities at member institutions.
The registration fee for this event is $25, which includes continental breakfast and lunch. Registration will be open through Friday, November 30.
