2019 Kraemer Copyright Conference

We are happy to officially announce the 7th Annual Kraemer Copyright Conference:

Copyright at the Crossroads

June 10-12, 2019

As usual, the 2019 conference will be held on the beautiful University of Colorado Colorado Springs campus in the University Center. The Kraemer Copyright Conference is a dynamic and enriching FREE conference that offers public, academic, special, and school librarians the opportunity to learn about U.S. Copyright Law and how it impacts the services we offer our library users. This conference provides an opportunity for professionals at every level and across libraries to discuss the importance of copyright in libraries as well as any updates to this law.

This year the Kraemer Copyright Conference tracks include:

  • Copyright and accessibility
    Now that the Marrakesh treaty has been ratified, people with print disabilities will have greater access to copyrighted materials. What does this landmark change in the law mean for balancing accessibility with observing copyright, and what implications does it have on our practices?
  • Licensing
    The proliferation of e-resources in libraries has turned copyright law on its head: instead of copyright law governing all resources, each resource is now governed by its own legally binding licensing agreement. Where does copyright law fit into this new landscape? Can we ever get back to a single governing law for all library resources?
  • Open track
    This track is open to any other copyright topic.
