On Friday, October 19th, the North Carolina Chapter of the Special Libraries Association will present, Staying Safe and Sane: Fair Use, Digitization, and Best Practices for Special Librarians. Three experts will share their insights during what promises to be a very informative program.
The panel will consist of:
-William Cross, Director, Copyright and Digital Scholarship Copyright and Digital Scholarship Center, NCSU Libraries,
-Kevin Smith, Director, Copyright and Scholarly Communication, Duke University Libraries
-Anne Gilliland is Scholarly Communications Officer, UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries
During the program, they will cover:
1. Overview of copyright and fair use with a focus on using music and video.
2. Issues in preservation and digitization including orphan works.
3. Best practices and the librarian’s role as an agent – duty to monitor patrons, when to intervene in cases of potential abuse, and how to deal with administrators, faculty, and other people in authority who are demanding more than you are comfortable with.
The program will be held from 10:00am – 12:00pm at the North Carolina Biotechnology Center in Research Triangle Park. An optional, on-site networking lunch will follow the program.
