September 2, 1999

Do you have questions on copyright law? Do you know how copyright law applies to digitized information? How do you cope with new formats and different methods of accessing and storing information? Modern technologies introduce new challenges and generate questions on issues of copyright. One of the leading authorities on copyright law and libraries will address these issues and answer your questions during this full day, limited attendance workshop.

Participants will learn to:

  • Understand the copyright law as it applies to libraries;
  • Apply existing law to newer electronic media;
  • Identify areas in which the law is unclear or in which new laws are needed; and
  • Design solutions to copyright problems in their local libraries.

Who Should Attend This Program?

Law librarians, non-law librarians, and others interested in learning the issues of copyright law and the effect of copyright on your daily job.
