As we pivot and adapt in these ever-changing times, libraries are increasing their online services, programs, and learning support. And, as we transition to offering more online services, programs, and learning support, many people have questions about fair use of material in online content.

Join us for one (or both!) of the webinars in this series to discuss the copyright issues that libraries of all types are facing in our current climate.

Series Presenter: Carla Myers (Miami University Library)
