Fair use webinar offered at K-State Libraries

Submitted by Donna Ekart

How can higher education institutions best facilitate faculty and student use of copyrighted materials as they teach, learn and research?

K-State Libraries offers faculty and graduate students the opportunity to find out through a free webinar on fair use this Monday, Sept. 16. Titled "Fair Use on the Physical and Digital Campus", the webinar is produced by Educause, and will be noon to 3 p.m. in Hale Library's fifth floor Hemisphere Room.

Malcolm Brown, Educause Learning Initiative director, and Veronica Diaz, Edcause Learning Initiative associate director, will moderate this online seminar with American University faculty Patricia Aufderheide and Peter Jaszi. Aufderheide and Jaszi will explain basic principles of fair use in copyright law, review recent changes in interpretation, discuss the best practices approach as developed by librarians, open courseware designers and members of the professoriate, and how to use these tools to facilitate the higher education mission, both in physical and digital spaces. There will be time for the presenters to take participant questions during the webinar. 

Reservations are not required, and there is no fee to attend. For further information, contact Jenny Oleen, scholarly communications librarian.
