Copyright and Course Reserves: Electronic and Media

Wednesday, March 11, 2020 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm
Classroom L (366), Hirsch Hall

In this webinar brought to us by the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), we'll explore ways in which academic libraries can lawfully connect faculty and students with access to books, book chapters, articles, and film through electronic and media reserve services. We'll also take a look at the Georgia State lawsuit and discuss what it means for academic libraries. This is a live webinar for group viewing. Following the webinar, UGA Library's Marrian Burright and UGA Law Library's Stephen Wolfson will facilitate discussion around these topics and issues for our own community.

Session participants will leave with an understanding of:

1. The six options available for lawfully making works available to students and faculty via electronic and media reserve services

2. Myths and misconceptions about copyright law that may trip-up libraries offering electronic and media reserve services

3. The future of electronic and media reserve services...will they (or should they) still be around 5 years from now?
