CopyTalk Webinar – Modern Interlibrary Loan Practices: Moving Beyond the CONTU Guidelines

Join the ALA Copyright, Legislation, Education, and Advocacy Network (CLEAN) for a free CopyTalk webinar at 2:00 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, December 3.

“Modern Interlibrary Loan Practices: Moving Beyond the CONTU Guidelines” will provide information on the ARL whitepaper published in August 2020. This whitepaper reexamines the role of the decades-old Commission on New Technological Uses of Copyrighted Works (CONTU) Guidelines in interlibrary lending. Much has changed since the advent of these guidelines – are they still relevant; what is a viable path forward?

The speakers will be two of the authors of the whitepaper:

  • Meg Oakley. Director, Copyright & Scholarly Communication, Georgetown University Library
  • Sara Benson, Copyright Librarian, University Library, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

This webinar will be of interest both to those who work with copyright in libraries as well as those who provide interlibrary loan services.

To attend, simply join the webinar on December 3, 2020, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. A recording of the webinar will also be freely available after the presentation on the CopyTalk archive page.
