This year’s training aims to demystify copyright law for librarians looking to promote collections online, and help staff develop risk management guidelines for using copyright works. We’ll be looking at copyright law and digitisation of library material, using social media platforms like Pinterest, Tumblr, Flickr, Facebook and Twitter, new digital history tools. We’ll then move on to have a look at the recent reforms and influences on copyright law, and try and get some sense of what libraries and copyright might look like in the future.
