To promote public health and slow the spread of COVID-19, thousands of universities and colleges closed campuses and libraries as they moved to remote teaching. Now, teaching, learning, and research continues almost exclusively online. With this shift came many questions about fair use, e-reserves, open licenses, scanning, digitization, and more! Many in the library community are working towards the best solution for students, faculty, staff, and patrons in this time of crisis. What can cultural institutions do to meet the needs of our communities? Join Kyle K. Courtney for a conversation about problems and solutions to some of the more interesting copyright law and policy complexities during the COVID-19 crisis.
This call brings together all librarians working with, or learning about, all things Open--and gives folks an opportunity to connect with each other to better their work and librarianship.
You can find all the proposed agendas and minutes from the Librarian community calls in one place, right here.
