The American Association of Law Libraries' (AALL) Professional Development Committee will present the workshop, "Copyright in the Age of Technology," on May 13, 1999, in Washington, D.C., at the firm of Covington & Burling.
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 of the Law Library and Professor of Law, Katherine R. Everett Law Library, University of North Carolina. The program is scheduled from 9:00 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. Registration forms may be obtained at http://www.aallnet.org/prodev/event_copyright.asp or by contacting Gina Rodriguez, Program Assistant, at AALL Headquarters, 312/939-4764 ext. 20.
