ALCTS webinar: Solutions for Copyright Issues in E-Learning

Wednesday, September 20, 2017
1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Date: Wednesday, September 20, 2017

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.


Description: Libraries are spending increasingly large percentages of their budgets on electronic resources. As online education and the use of e-resources dramatically escalate, awareness of copyright issues becomes crucial, not only in the library world but also in the academic community as a whole. Libraries struggle to ensure copyright compliance for all materials used in electronic reserves and learning management systems (LMS). In switching to ProQuest SIPX for managing and sharing digital course materials, Pepperdine predicted savings in both staff time and copyright costs. The presenters will share how Pepperdine integrated SIPX with their LMS (Sakai) to allow them to easily find copyrighted course materials and to make the materials accessible from the Sakai Courses site. Ensuring that library resources and open content are visible through e-reserves translates into helping support the teaching and learning environment and closer library collaborations with IT and faculty.


Learning outcomes: Following the webinar, attendees will understand:

* How to deal with copyright management challenges in the era of nearly universal adoption of learning management systems.

* How integrating a tool such as SIPX with a learning management system can make it easier to find copyrighted course materials.
