Have a question about copyright policies? Library copyright experts will be available during the 2016 American Library Association’s (ALA) Annual Conference in Orlando, Fla. to respond to vexing copyright questions about licensing, fair use, electronic reserves, using music, images and video content, and more. Join copyright leaders during the interactive session “Ask Us Anything: Copyright Open House,” at which participants will have the opportunity to engage copyright experts on all of their copyright concerns. The session takes place on Sunday, June 26, 2016, from 1:00–2:30 p.m. in Orange County Convention Center, in room S329.
The program will include a late breaking copyright policy update from copyright leaders. The session will be a great opportunity to meet copyright geeks keen on helping academic, public and school librarians. The session is co-sponsored by the ALA Committee on Legislation (COL) Copyright Subcommittee. Participants will hear from a number of dynamic copyright experts, including Michael Brewer, head of the Research & Learning Department at the University of Arizona Libraries; Chris Le Beau, assistant teaching professor of the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies, University of Missouri; Laura Quilter, Copyright and Information Policy Librarian at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst; Carrie Russell, program director of the Public Access to Information for the American Library Association’s Office for Information Technology Policy; and Peggy Tahir, Education & Copyright Librarian at the University of California–San Francisco (UCSF) Library.
