Copyright Conference 2015

Librarians are constantly confronted with copyright questions and issues in the routine execution of their duties. The UCCS Copyright Conference offers public, academic, and school librarians the opportunity to learn about U.S. Copyright Law and how it impacts the services we offer our patrons. The conference will cover:
  • The fundamentals of U.S. Copyright Law which every librarian needs to be familiar with;
  • The copyright exceptions of fair use and section 108;
  • Recent court cases which impact the services we offer our patrons.
In the break-out sessions participants will explore relevant copyright topics more in-depth. Conference participants will develop a better understanding of the law and learn how to balance the rights of authors and creators with the needs of our patrons. The conference speakers have extensive knowledge and experience working with library copyright issues and have presented nationally and internationally on intellectual property topics.
