What is the Copyright Symposium?
The OLA Copyright Committee regularly host a symposium focusing on issues related to copyright for various types of libraries. As librarians and library technicians with responsibility for administering copyright policy and/or educating colleagues and users it is necessary to develop professional skills and judgment to discern both the needs of our communities and the extent of what the law will allow. The symposium aims to assist librarians and library staff in developing copyright knowledge grounded in existing law and tailored to the unique needs and culture of their institution.
This event is planned by the OLA Copyright Committee
