Copyright law interacts with librarianship in many ways from preservation and digitization to circulation and inter-library loan to creating physical and digital exhibits. Because copyright issues are so pervasive, it is important to have a basic knowledge of copyright law to apply to librarianship.

As such, this beginner’s course in copyright law for librarians will introduce you to key concepts such as the exclusive rights to copyright ownership, the public domain, and fair use.

After attending this session, participants will:
· Know basic copyright law concepts
· Understand areas where copyright interacts with library practice
· Know which items may be in the public domain
· Know how to apply a fair use analysis to their own work
