Copyright for Librarians

Copyright for Librarians

Copyright for Librarians is a joint project of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society and EIFL, a consortium of libraries from 50 countries in Africa, Asia and Europe. The goal of the project is to provide librarians in developing and transitional countries information concerning copyright law. More specifically, it aspires to inform librarians concerning: 1) copyright law in general, 2) the aspects of copyright law that most affect libraries, 3) how librarians in the future could most effectively participate in the processes by which copyright law is interpreted and shaped.

This wiki-formatted training module on copyright provides a great introduction to these issues for librarians and LIS faculty.   The strength of this resource lies in its case study-driven communication of issues.  Although the amount of text in the module is significant, and would benefit from content in other modalities, the flexibility of print allows for easy translation to course readings or self-guided study.
