Fair Use Workshops Benefit Library Staff

Posted By Administration, Thursday, December 5, 2013

On May 15-16, 2013 Barbara DeFelice, Director of the Digital Resources and Scholarly Communication Programs at the Dartmouth College Library, coordinated a visit by Brandon Butler, Director of Public Policy Initiatives at the Association for Research Libraries, who offered three workshops/discussions for staff of the Jones Media Center at Dartmouth College. The workshops, though targeted to different groups within the library, addressed how to use the "Codes of Best Practice in Fair Use" to provide guidance in making decisions about the use and reuse of materials. Overall, I believe the sessions and the conversations were quite useful and successful.

The specific workshops were as follows: 

Workshop 1: Digital Access and Reproduction of Materials Bring your experiences and questions regarding copyright, and get comfortable with code sections 1 (Supporting Teaching and Learning with Access to Library Materials via Digital Technologies).  We may also touch on code section 5 (Reproducing Material for Use by Disabled Students, Faculty, Staff and Other Appropriate Users).

Workshop 2: In Support of Teaching, Learning and Research Discuss cases from your experiences supporting teachers and learners, and bring your questions about sections 1 (Supporting Teaching and Learning with Access to Library Materials via Digital Technologies), 2 (Using Selections from Collection Materials to Publicize a Library¹s Activities, or to Create Physical and Virtual Exhibitions), 7 (Creating Databases to Facilitate Non Consumptive Research Uses (Including Search), and 8 (Collecting Material Posted on the World Wide Web and Making it Available).

Workshop 3: Digitizing Collections Using our experiences in digitization projects, the management and preservation of digital content, and use of materials in Special Collections, we will explore sections 3 (Digitizing to Preserve At-Risk Items), 4 ( Creating Digital Collections of Archival and Special Collections Materials), and 6 (Maintaining the Integrity of Works Deposited in Institutional Repositories).
