The American Association of Law Libraries' (AALL) Professional Development Committee will present the workshop, "Copyright Law in the Age of Technology," on May 6 & 7, 1998, at the University of Pennsylvania's Biddle Law Library in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
This professional development program will address the many issues surrounding copyright and the many challenges modern technology presents to copyright law. One of the leading authorities on copyright law and libraries will address these issues and answer questions such as: How does copyright law apply to digitized information? What are the changes in copyright in the electronic environment? How do you cope with new formats and different methods of accessing and storing information?
Faculty instructor for this program will be AALL member Laura N. Gasaway (Director and Professor of Law, Katherine R. Everett Law Library, University of North Carolina). This is a one-day program being presented twice and attendees may elect to attend on May 6 or May 7. Times for both days are 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Registration forms may be obtained at http://www.aallnet.org/events/edu_copyright_gplla.asp or by contacting Maggie Kearney, Program Assistant, at AALL Headquarters, 312/939-4764. The deadline for registrations is April 15, 1998.
Future copyright workshops are also being planned. If you are interested in hosting a copyright program, contact Lara Koban, Educational Program Coordinator, at AALL Headquarters, 312/939-4764.
