Librarians & Library staff are often expected to negotiate and advise in a complicated copyright landscape. As non-lawyers, we can’t give you legal advice, but as copyright practitioners we have tons of practical experience and insight we will share with active learning exercises sprinkled throughout. From copyright basics in a new light, to ways to talk copyright to patrons and stakeholders, this workshop is designed to get everyone, no matter their experience, more comfortable with copyright issues. We will also give up-to-the-minute updates on what is happening with copyright in Canada (it is a busy year!), copyright advocacy, and will involve a number of people from different library types to contribute to the conversation.
