The Association of Research Libraries will be discussing the forthcoming Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries via webcast on Thursday, January 26 at 3pm EST. Developed through thorough research and drawing on the expertise of lawyers Brandon Butler and Peter Jaszi and Center for Social Media director Pat Aufderheide, this eagerly awaited endeavor addresses a number of fair use challenges with which academic libraries contend on a regular basis. Read more about the webcast and register here. If you’re unable to attend, you can catch the whole thing on ARL’s YouTube channel anon.
Jaszi and Aufderheide are the authors of Reclaiming Fair Use: How to Put Balance Back in Copyright (highly recommended, user-friendly guide to the subject), and Butler and Jaszi starred at the Copyright & Fair Use conference held at BMCC last April.
