The Post-Access Copyright Landscape: A Report from the Atlantic Region
    Thursday May 24, 2012 10:30am - 12:00pm @ Patterson Hall, Room 224

    During 2011, the issue of copyright dominated the agendas of Canadian universities and colleges due to a massive proposed increase in license fees by Canadian copyright collective, Access Copyright. This presentation will provide an overview of the recent controversy, highlight initiatives to support copyright compliance in the new environment under universities that have opted out of the Access Copyright interim tariff, and discuss how the roles of many librarians expanded in the aftermath to include copyright expertise. Hidden Treasure link: Uncovering the copyright knowledge that librarians possess, which a recent study suggests is often greater than that held by faculty, and positioning ourselves as “copyright go-to persons” in our institutions.
