Library copyright issues subject of Open Access Week talk
As a part of Open Access Week 2011, the School of Information Studies (iSchool) will host Dorothea Salo, faculty associate at the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison for a talk on copyright practices and how libraries are dealing with them.
Salo’s talk, “Will Libraries Survive Copyright,” examines current national and international copyright practices that have the potential to devastate libraries as we know them. Widely accepted practices such as First Sale, Section 108 (the library “fair use” code), electronic reserves, interlibrary loan, electronic-book and e-journal lending are all under legal threat. Digitization of library-owned materials presents additional challenges, as does the technology used in the name of enforcing copyright.
The talk will be held in Hinds Hall 011 (Innovation Studio) at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27.
