The Copyright, Legislation, Education, and Advocacy Network (CLEAN) developed and maintained several copyright tools to help librarians and their patrons navigate various copyright issues. These tools – the Public Domain Slider, the Section 108 Spinner, the Fair Use Evaluator and the Exception for Instructors eTool available via links from the ALA website. The Public domain slider has been updated and the Copyright Genie was fixed so that things falling into the public domain this year would show up correctly as in the public domain. The ALA Copyright Network analytics indicate consistent use of all tools year round.
Thanks to ALA and CLEAN for updating these tools! We all appreciate it!
