Complete Copyright Webinar
Tuesday, December 4, 2012 1:00:00 PM PST - 2:00:00 PM PST
As the digital environment continues to develop rapidly, school librarians and K-12 educators face challenging issues concerning copyright-protected print and online materials at schools and outside of the traditional educational environment. When asked to make copyright decisions, uncertain librarians and educators tend to take more conservative copyright positions than necessary for fear of liability.

The American Library Association’s Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP) released the book Complete Copyright for K–12 Librarians and Educators to help librarians and teachers understand copyright law. The book teaches school librarians and educators how to fully exercise rights such as fair use while making decisions that are both lawful and best serve the learning community.

The book, written by Carrie Russell, director of ALA’s Program on Public Access to Information, explores complex situations often encountered in classrooms, such as the use of copyrighted material for school assignments, library operations, extracurricular activities and on the Web. Additionally, the book includes original and extraordinary illustrations by cartoonist Jessica Abel that depict “the day in the life” of a typical high school.
