Computers in Libraries 2010, April 12-14, Crystal City, VA

I am participating in 2 CIL sessions this year:

A302 - Licensing Content & Creative Commons
11:30 am - 12:15 pm on Wed April 14 2010
I will discuss licensing issues and strategies appropriate for libraries. My co-speaker Michael Sauers will discuss Creative Commons. Plenty of time for audience questions and discussions.

W17 - Copyright Management 101
9:00 am - 12 pm on Thurs April 15
The workshop includes discussions on copyright risk management, essential terms and conditions to include in your license agreements, managing fair use, avoiding a copyright infringement suit, contents of a Copyright Policy, making copyright compliance a reality in your library and more! Interactive, information, and fun -- a great opportunity to gain knowledge and confidence when dealing with copyright protected materials and licensed e-resources in your library.


Hope to see you there!
