Mar'15: Fair Use: Guidelines and Best Practices (ALA)

A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, March 11, 2015, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

As musicians share remixes and mashups, and big media cast a net of takedown notices over piracy, misunderstandings on fair-use guidelines abound. At worst, a restrictive view of the guidelines can stifle creativity and research in your library’s community. Attorney and librarian Gretchen McCord will demonstrate productive interpretations of fair-use guidelines for libraries. You will learn how to empower your patrons with statements of best practices used independently and along with the fair-use guidelines.
