Taming the Copyright Hydra: How Salisbury University’s Access Services team put It’s Heads Together

A session at MLA/DLA Annual Conference 2013

  • Mou Chakraborty
  • Michael English
  • Melissa Thomas

Thursday 9th May, 2013

2:00pm to 3:15pm (EST)

In much the same way that two heads grew back each time one of the mythological Hydra’s was cut off, so too, do two copyright questions arise each time one copyright question is answered. This session will begin with a refresher on copyright, fair use fundamentals, and current copyright law related to electronic reserves and course management systems. Next, we will discuss Blackwell Library’s journey to fill copyright compliance, which required integration and collaboration between faculty, the library, and Instructional Design and Delivery to confront copyright and permissions issues that extended beyond articles and chapters to streaming videos.
