CopyTalk: copyright librarian starter kit

Many librarians are finding themselves in the position of being the local copyright expert. Some of these librarians are professionals who applied for a formal copyright librarian posting. However, other librarians are tasked with taking on copyright, to fill a growing yet unclear need in their organization, while retaining their other job responsibilities.

The purpose of this webinar is to help other incoming copyright librarians know what to expect, and to prepare them with a basic knowledge base of user needs to ease into them into their new role. This CopyTalk will provide specific guidance, and include “hands-on” best practices. A sample of the topics covered are finding collaborators within and beyond the library, how to start building the foundation for an education program, understanding what advocacy looks like, and getting a handle on the kinds of questions a Copyright Librarian answers.

Our speaker Emilie Algenio will share what she has learned in her first years of service, in her full-time librarian position as the Copyright/Fair Use Librarian for an American research university.

Emilie Algenio is the Copyright/Fair Use Librarian for the Texas A&M University Libraries, and she focuses on copyright education and outreach. She recently co-presented on their program for graduate students at the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions’ annual meeting in Poland. She started her career as the Library Resident at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, followed by her position as the Consortia Resources Coordinator for the University of Texas System Libraries. Emilie graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Guilford College, has a Masters of Library and Information Science from Simmons College, and is a 2014 graduate of Harvard University’s “CopyrightX.”

    We had a lot of technical issues this time around, plus the class can only have 100 participants, so incoming people were automatically bumped. I apologize. We will have the archived copy available next week at http://www.ala.org/advocacy/pp/pub/copytalk.
