Copyright for Librarians - the essential handbook

Copyright for Librarians - the essential handbook | Information Science | 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. More specifically, it aspires to inform librarians concerning copyright law in general; the aspects of copyright law that most affect libraries; and how librarians in the future could most effectively participate in the processes by which copyright law is interpreted and shaped.

Are we meeting the needs of student users in academic libraries? | American Libraries Magazine | Information Science | Scoop.it
- “Meeting the Needs of Student Users in Academic Libraries: Reaching Across the Great Divide,” published by Chandos Publishing and available through ALA Neal-Schuman, takes an honest look at learning commons in academic libraries and discusses what is working and what is not.

To evaluate their findings, authors Michele Crump and LeiLani Freund examine the measurement tools that libraries have used to evaluate usage and satisfaction, including contemporary anthropological studies that provide a more detailed view of students’ approach to research. They take a candid look at these redesigns and ask if improvements have lived up to expectations of increased service and user satisfaction. Including many actual survey questions and answers, this book will help academic librarians and administrators provide better services to student users.
