Re-designed as a textbook, “Copyright for Librarians: the essential handbook” can be used as a stand-alone resource or as an adjunct to the online curriculum. With a new index and a handy Glossary, it is essential reading for librarians and for anyone learning about or teaching copyright law in the information field.
“…What makes this volume so special – and so uniquely valuable – is that it puts reliable guidance in the framework of a broader analysis of copyright policy, focusing attention on the role that librarians can play. As the book makes clear, library patrons benefit from national laws that balance protection and access, and librarians can help assure that their own national legislation fits this description. This is a book that everyone concerned with the future of libraries everywhere will want to consult again and again in the years to come.” Peter Jaszi, Professor of Law, American University Law School
