The LPSS Planning Committee is pleased to announce Mrs. Pat Mulroy, will be speaking at the LPSS Forum “Sharing” Water and Information: Water Policy in the Colorado River Basin at ALA on Saturday, June 28 from 1:00-2:30. Mrs. Mulroy has served as the General Manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) from 1993 to her retirement in early 2014. SNWA is a not-for-profit cooperative agency established in 1991 which manages regional water sources and focuses on the water needs of Southern Nevada. The forum will focus on Mrs. Mulroy’s experience as General Manager of SNWA and how negotiating water policy for southern Nevada included many partners and players. As a public figure, Mrs. Mulroy has been a key player in providing water policy information to the public, which, with a resource as essential as water, draws much public scrutiny. Mrs. Mulroy was a driving force in the acquisition of water in southern Nevada, having negotiated several of interstate and international water agreements. The forum will provide a glimpse into water policy and the politics of sharing information and water between states, governments, and internationally.

Discussion ACRL e-Learning webcast: “Fair Use in Your Library after Georgia State”

by Megan Griffin (staff) on Tue, Nov 27, 2012 at 09:22 am

ACRL e-Learning webcast - “Fair Use in Your Library after Georgia State”
Tuesday, December 4, 2012
1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Central

ACRL e-Learning webcast - “Fair Use in Your Library after Georgia State”
Tuesday, December 4, 2012
1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Central

Register now for the ACRL e-Learning webcast, “Fair Use in Your Library after Georgia State,” to be offered Tuesday, December 4 (1:00 – 2:30 p.m. Central time).  This live, interactive webcast will examine how the recent federal court decision involving copyright and the Georgia State University Library may shape fair use policies in academic libraries for decades.  A lower-court judge ruled that the Georgia State University Library was the "prevailing party" in a lawsuit brought by Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, and Sage Publications. The publishers have appealed that ruling. What does this all mean, and what does it mean for your library?  During the webcast, copyright librarians and lawyers will explore and dissect the court's framework using specific examples from the case in order to explain the ruling of the case, the effect that the case may have on future fair use analyses, and its impact on library policies such as course reserves and interlibrary loan.  Bring questions about fair use in your library!

Presenters: Dwayne K. Buttler, J.D., Professor, University Libraries, Evelyn J. Schneider Endowed Chair for Scholarly Communication, University of Louisville; Donna Ferullo, Director of the University Copyright Office and Associate Professor of Library Science, Purdue University; Tim Gritten, Assistant Director of Libraries for User Services, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Complete details including the full webcast description, learning outcomes, and registration materials are available online.  Contact Margot Conahan at mconahan@ala.org or call (312) 280-2522 with questions.
