What is fair use? How can libraries use their fair use rights to better accomplish their missions? A pathbreaking new document, The Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries, provides powerful new insight into the ways that librarians themselves apply fair use principles to resolve central and recurring copyright challenges.
Supported by a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and based on two years of research into the core challenges that libraries face and the considered opinions of librarians from across the country on how best to solve them using fair use, the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries gives librarians tools to help them reason clearly as they tackle challenging copyright issues.
The presenter for this webinar is Brandon Butler. Brandon Butler is the Director of Public Policy Initiatives at the Association of Research Libraries (ARL).
