Copyright in Action: Understanding Section 108
Libraries share a common mission to preserve and freely share collected resources. As we move further into a world of contracting for access to (instead of ownership of) digital resources, it’s critical for library staff members to understand how Section 108 of copyright law impacts how we build collections and how we share them through services like interlibrary loan.
Attendees of this session will have the opportunity to:
- Review basic history of copyright legislation and case law
- Explore Section 108 in detail, including how it can be used for preservation and accessibility purposes
- Discuss resources to stay informed on this issue
Who Should Attend
Library staff who work in interlibrary loan, circulation, course reserves, archives, accessibility services and community outreach and anyone with an interest in the topic.
