"Copyright & Libraries: A Leadership Workshop" Sponsored by the Association of Research Libraries

September 19 - 20, 1996
University of Washington, Seattle
Husky Union Building
Seattle, WA

Purpose and Overview:
This two-day Copyright Workshop for directors and librarians in research and academic libraries will be held on September 19 - 20, 1996. The goals of the workshop are to:

  1. provide a foundation for understanding the U.S. copyright law and related guidelines and court cases;
  2. update librarians about copyright in the print and electronic environment, with an emphasis on the impact of the NII on copyright; and,
  3. contribute to educational efforts to increase copyright awareness within the North American higher education and research communities.

Day One will provide the conceptual framework of U.S. copyright, review in detail the law, related guidelines, key legal cases, and anticipated legislative changes. Day One will also include an overview of the framework of a university copyright policy, including an examination of the university and/or faculty ownership of faculty works and the impact of technology on those policies. The day will conclude with a case study of developing a copyright awareness program within a research institution.

Day Two moves participants from the conceptual framework to the application of copyright by beginning with a facilitated discussion of the tensions between holders and users of copyrighted materials. Breakout sessions will encourage participants to engage in focused discussions on the impact of copyright and licensing on the following library functions or collections: electronic reserves, interlibrary loan, preservation, database licensing, distance education, multimedia, software, special collections/archives/images, and Web sites, as well as university and/or faculty ownership of copyrighted works. The workshop will end with participants developing an action plan to take back to their own institutions.

Target Audience:

     The workshop is limited to librarians interested in increasing their knowledge of copyright in an educational setting. Individuals might include those who:
