#NWILL Conference & Copyright Resources

NWILL conference

This upcoming September I will be attending the Northwest Interlibrary Loan & Resource Sharing Conference also known as #NWILL. This online conference focuses on interlibrary loan (ILL), document delivery, and resource sharing. In my role as a library worker, I provide support in these areas so I look forward to learning how to develop better practices and streamline processes in serving patrons through ILL. I am thankful to the conference committee for providing a free scholarship for me to attend.

I’ve been attending the Virtual Copyright First Responders Series led by Kyle K. Courtney, a lawyer and librarian, and a Copyright Advisor for Harvard University. Here are the topics of discussion:

  • Practical Copyright for Libraries, Archives and Cultural Institutions
  • US Copyright 108
  • Fair Use, part 1
  • Fair Use, part 2 & the Right of First Sale/Licensing

Kyle has been very engaging in the sessions – covering these complex topics and making them very relevant. It’s very fascinating to learn more about copyright and how it affects our work in libraries and archives.
