Copyright for Librarians - the essential handbook | Bibliotecas Escolares | Scoop.it

Copyright for Librarians" (CFL) is an online open curriculum on copyright law that was developed jointly with Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society.

The goal is to provide librarians in developing and transition countries information concerning copyright law.
