Overview

Copyright expert, attorney, and Texas Library Association President-Elect Gretchen McCord Hoffmann, author of Copyright in Cyberspace (2001) addresses the challenges of providing information in an increasingly digital—and litigious—world. From fair use to infringement, this practical handbook features the need-to-know guidelines for professionals in all areas of librarianship including technical services, interlibrary loan, reserves, Web design, instruction, and virtual or distance delivery. Topics covered include hyperlinks and framing; browsing and caching; digital images; interlibrary loan and resource sharing; e-reserves and class-based Web pages; library instruction and distance education; and more. Copyright in Cyberspace 2 features new and expanded chapters on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act; file-sharing; licensing; writing a copyright policy; and more. An invaluable section of the book compiles helpful, up-to-date online and print sources and excerpts pertinent legislation and guidelines, creating a sourcebook librarians can reference as needs arise. Written in an easy-to-understand, question-and-answer format that reveals the essential information and avoids confusing technical jargon and legalese, Copyright in Cyberspace 2 is a unique resource for librarians.
