Here’s a new one to add to your growing copyright and fair use collection: Copyright Questions and Answers for Information Professionals: From the Columns of Against the Grain.  The author, law professor Laura Gasaway, is a regular contributor on copyright issues for the library/publishing news site, Against the Grain. “It’s like a more extensive version of The Code,” writes one CUNY librarian who recommends the book, “in that it gives detailed answers to great questions very specific to our field – and it comes highly endorsed by Kenneth Crews, among others.” As always, keep in mind that such information-rich resources like this are by no means the province of librarians only. All of us in higher education have to wrestle with copyright and fair use questions, and it behooves us to try to get a grip on them.
