This series is devised primarily to support candidates for professional qualifications. However, many of the events in the programme are highly relevant to all levels of library staff – who may or may not be seeking Certification or Chartership, but who wish to further their professional skills and development.

Using copyright material legally even for educational purposes can be complicated. For example, permission or a licence is always required when sharing copyright material with multiple users, and further permission is required for dissemination via electronic means – e-mail, u-Link, intranets.

This session aims to break down the myths surrounding the use of copyright content for educational purposes and outline permitted uses of copyright material in relation to both the analogue and digital environments.

Through a presentation and interactive scenario-based session, participants will:

– develop an understanding of the principles of copyright and statutory exceptions for educational purposes and private research/study

– gain knowledge information on permitted uses of copyright material by staff and students under educational copyright licensing

– develop an awareness of the complexity of managing copyright in a digital environment and individual and institutional liability for copyright infringement

Participants will also have the opportunity to pose questions on copyright issues in general and receive guidance on best practice and are encouraged to bring questions based on real life issues for discussion.
