Tuesday morning keynote: New ARL Best Practices in Fair Use

When: 3 April 2012 – 8:30am Central

Peter Jaszi & Brandon Butler will present the Tuesday morning Keynote session, “New ARL Best Practices in Fair Use” with the support of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). What is fair use, and how can libraries use their fair use rights to better accomplish their missions, from preservation to support for scholarship and teaching to digitizing collections for public access? A trail-breaking new document, the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries, provides powerful new insights into the ways librarians can apply fair use principles to resolve central and recurring copyright challenges.  Brandon Butler of the Association of Research Libraries, and Peter Jaszi of American University Law School, co-facilitators of the code, will introduce this new document at this event.  They will provide an overview of its contents and discuss how librarians and library staff can use its principles in solving local challenges and improving local policies dealing with copyright and fair use. Funded by 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, this new code gives librarians tools to help reason through challenging copyright issues.
