Copyright for Librarians - the essential handbook

Copyright for Librarians - the essential handbook | Info Literacy = Student learning | 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.

How to get rid of massive waitlists for college courses and turn professors into rock stars

How to get rid of massive waitlists for college courses and turn professors into rock stars | Info Literacy = Student learning | Scoop.it

Genevieve Gallagher's insight:
