Nov. 2022 - Feb. 2023: Jill's Presentation Schedule

Jill Hurst-Wahl

In a few weeks, I'll be giving my first in-person presentation since 2019. WOW! Being back in front of a group will be wonderful! Over the next few months, I'm also given several online webinars and a copyright class. If you're at any of these events, please say 'hello"!

Nov. 3, 1:45-3:00 p.m.: Creating Remote Access to Library Collection at NYLA in Saratoga Springs, NY.

Over the last several years, libraries of all types have begun leveraging their collections to provide additional access to materials through the Controlled Digital Lending legal framework. In this session, the speakers will review the legal and technical fundamentals of CDL-type access, build an understanding of risk management, and discuss how to talk about CDL to relevant stakeholders. Examples of success and roadblocks will be shared.

Also on the panel will be Matthew Kopel and John Raymond. The session is sponsored by Section on Management of Information Resources and Technology (SMART).

Dec. 6, 10:00-11:30 a.m. ET: Starting from Where You Are - Becoming Anti-Isms. Webinar for CLRC. Registration is now open for members of the Central NY Library Resources Council (CLRC) and the Empire State Library Network (ESLN). [updated 10/25/2022]

Steps towards becoming anti-racist include developing an awareness of your own culture, cultivating cultural humility, and recognizing that it is a never-ending process that is not a straight line. This interactive session will have participants thinking about their own cultural backgrounds and the cultures of the community members our libraries serve. Resources for continuing this journey towards being anti-racist and anti-isms will be provided.

Feb. 7, 2023, 2:00-- 3:30 p.m. ET: Copyright and Fair Use in Academic Libraries. Webinar for LYRASIS. 

While U.S. copyright law changes slowly, what does change is how we think about the application of that law to situations in our libraries. This webinar will use common scenarios to discuss the application of fair use in academic libraries, including digital lending in a controlled environment (a.k.a. CDL), the use of digital resources, interacting with students and faculty on fair use in photocopying, and much more. Basic copyright information will be provided, so that everyone enters the scenarios with similar knowledge. There will be time for participant questions throughout.

This webinar will use interactive components to allow participants to apply what they are learning to their own situations.

April 17- May 28, 2023: U.S. Copyright Law in the Library: A Beginner's Guide! for ALA.  Registration is not yet available.

The library is a hub of content, all of it subject to copyright law. The legal reality of copyright is dynamic—changes in technology have created a landscape that is constantly adapting and can be difficult to predict. If you don't have any formal training in copyright law, it can be intimidating to know how to answer your patrons' copyright questions and to know what you can and cannot do with your library’s content and resources. It can be tough to understand the line between providing information and answering a legal question.
