The Report to the Commissioner of the First Phase of CONFU was released to the public in September 1997. It included a
statement indicating that the Fair use Guidelines for Educational
Multimedia had received endorsement broad enough to be considered in
final rather than proposed form.
The Final CONFU Report to the Commissioner was published is November 1998. This report includes sections on
background, the CONFU process, and the status of proposals for
guidelines for Digital Images, Distance Learning, Educational
Multimedia, Electronic Reserve Systems, Interlibrary Loans and Document
Delivery, and Use of Computer Software in Libraries.
Additional information on the history of the guidelines can be found in Extended Background on the Negotiation Process for the Fair Use Guideline
