Copyright Under Quarantine: Virtual Programming and Services

  • Copyright
  • Webinar
  • 1.5 CE Hours


As we pivot and adapt in these ever-changing times, libraries are increasing their online services, programs, and learning support. 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.

Session Description:

The shifts in the ways we provide services and programs to our communities have been drastic over the last few months. Library staff are doing their best to find creative solutions to complex problems, and many have implemented or amplified online programs and tools.

In this free 90-minute webinar, we’ll discuss ideas, options, questions and best practices to help you be thoughtful and informed about using and sharing copyright-protected material with patrons. Participants in this session will have the opportunity to:

  • Explore tools for determining the copyright status of a work
  • Review the four factors of fair use and how they can be applied
  • Examine common copyright questions and scenarios

Who Should Attend

Any library staff member involved with programming or outreach, and anyone with an interest in the topic.
