Copyright Scholar

Dukelow Joins ALA Copyright Advisory Network Team

MLC Associate Director, Ruth Dukelow, attended Copyright Scholar training at the ALA Washington Office earlier this month. Dukelow will serve on the ALA Copyright Advisory Network (CAN) Team for the 2007-2008 term.

ALA's District Dispatch announced:

Last week, Carrie Russell of ALA's Office for Information Technology Policy conducted training for the eight new Copyright Scholars, the team of copyright specialists now serving as consultants on the Copyright Advisory Network (CAN).

By all accounts, the training was a great success, and with the help of these librarians CAN will continue to be a key resource for librarians who have questions about copyright.

The purpose of CAN is to encourage librarians to discuss copyright concerns, and for them to seek feedback and advice from fellow librarians and copyright specialists. The site is extremely comprehensive, with forums, a blog and an excellent list of links and resources. Discussion is fully encouraged, because with copyright there are no definitive answers, so your perspective or point of view will add to a full exchange of ideas.
