This year's online workshop series opens with a freshly updated offering
of Georgia Harper's popular workshop:

         Copyright Law and Integrated Access
        to Digital Course Materials(revisited)

            October 27-November 7, 2008
    Early Registration Deadline: October 12, 2008

Moderator: Georgia Harper

This workshop will explore how an integrated approach to the various
methods our campuses use to provide access to digital educational course
materials can facilitate institutional compliance with copyright law.
We'll start with a high-level discussion of fair use and review the role
it plays in enabling access to certain types of materials. Most
importantly, these explorations will underscore the fact that creating
and operating access systems for digital materials, and the copyright
issues involved, are institutional concerns and not just a matter of
library services.

When you have completed the course, you will be able to:
*Identify and understand each of the legal authorizations available to
faculty to use others' materials
          oLicensed materials
          oMaterials available freely on the web
            (creative commons and implied licenses)
          oOrphan works
          oThe role of fair use, the limits on that role, and the
importance of knowing your institution's risk tolerance in order to
decide how to apply the fair use test for small, medium and large-scale
course materials access operations
          oTEACH Act
          oThe role of Copyright Clearance Center's transactional
permissioning and campus-wide subscription licensing
*Identify the features of an integrated approach to digital materials
access that promote its acceptance and use among faculty and graduate
*Identify the institutional units on your campus that would need to be
involved in creating an integrated system for providing digital access
to course materials
*Participate in discussions on your campus of the need and methods for
achieving an integrated approach to access to digital course materials.
