Copyright Complexities: Promoting Copyright Education on the Digitized Campus
The need for copyright expertise in academic libraries gained importance with the increasing reliance on digital resources and the use of electronic course management systems and e-learning platforms. The advent of MOOCs (massive open online courses) and other types of online courses necessitated that librarians be able to answer faculty questions and educate them on copyright law as it applies to teaching and learning in the digital environment.

This presentation will explore and discuss the promotion of copyright education on campus. It will discuss outreach, the importance of fair use, and how to encourage and promote fair uses of material. Images can be particularly tricky; there will be discussion of open images, images and resources in the public domain, and works with creative commons licenses.

Copyright in the Digital Library: Where we Stand in 2018
Digital library projects are wound up inextricably with the state of an ever-changing copyright law that governs the usage of everything from books to software. What can be digitized? Under what conditions? How can collections be used, to whom can they be made available, and subject to what restrictions? Court decisions, especially those about fair use, can change the landscape without much notice, and so can the much slower movements of Congress and the Copyright Office. This talk will review the current state of affairs for copyright and the digital library; highlight the initiatives, cases, bills, and administrative actions to watch; and venture one or two humble predictions about where things are headed.
