It’s Fair Use/Fair Dealing Week! Today we’re spotlighting ACRL’s professional development opportunities that can help you understand and apply these crucial limitations and exceptions to copyright law, even outside of Fair Use Week.
Live e-Learning Webcast
Register today for the two-part webcast series, “Copyright and Course Reserves,” offered March 4 and March 11 at 1:00pm CT.
Explore issues related to copyright for print, electronic, and media reserves in this interactive two-part webcast series. In part one, explore the copyright issues associated with offering print reserve services, including the first sale doctrine and fair use, and in part two, look at the way in which academic libraries can lawfully connect faculty and students with access to books, book chapter, articles, and film through electronic and media reserve services.
Administrators, librarians, and staff in academic libraries who work with library reserve services are encouraged to attend. This live webcast series is presented by Carla Myers, Assistant Professor and Coordinator of Scholarly Communications for the Miami University Libraries and a presenter for ACRL’s Scholarly Communication RoadShow.

With this workshop, ACRL empowers our community in accelerating the transformation of the scholarly communication system.
Building your Research Data Management Toolkit: Integrating RDM into Your Liaison Work
Research data management has emerged as a need among academic researchers and liaisons are building skills in response. This one-day workshop will assist liaisons to identify their existing skills and mindsets that transfer to research data management services and then create a learning plan for the RDM specific knowledge needed to serve their subject disciplines. Tools, hints, and tricks will be shared that facilitate partnerships on campus with disciplinary faculty and with other RDM service providers.
