Webcast One: Print Reserves

Wednesday, November 6, 2019
In offering print reserve services, academic libraries can help faculty and students access required and supplemental learning materials including, but not limited to books, DVDs, music CDs, and photocopies of works such as book chapters. In this 90-minute webinar we’ll explore the copyright issues associated with offering print reserve services, including the first sale doctrine and fair use.

Webcast Two: Electronic and Media Reserves

Wednesday, November 13, 2019
In this webinar, we’ll explore ways in which academic libraries can lawfully connect faculty and students with access to books, book chapters, articles, and film through electronic and media reserve services. We’ll also take a look at the Georgia State lawsuit and discuss what it means for academic libraries.

  • The nature and scope of print reserve services
  • The options available under US copyright law for providing lawful access to learning materials

  • Myths and misconceptions about copyright law that may trip-up libraries offering electronic and media reserve services
