Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Attorney/librarian Bielefield and law librarian Cheeseman's new work challenges us to understand our fair use and Section 108 rights well enough to employ and protect them. With a good sense of historical context and concise, straightforward language, the authors (Libraries and Copyright Law, Professional Reading, LJ 6/1/93; Library Patrons and the Law, Professional Reading LJ 2/1/96) illustrate the relationship between technological change and the development of copyright protection. In addition, to a strong focus on fair use, their book provides guidance for making copyright decisions in an electronic age. It also includes a representative selection (some as current as 1996) of model policies and fair use guidelines for different types of media, a glossary, and an introduction to contractual agreements (with a handy contract checklist), distance learning, and protection of international works. In a highly transitional time for copyright law, this is valuable reading for all of us.Johanna Johnson, Dallas P.L.
School Library Journal
Bielefield, an attorney with an MLS degree, and co-author Cheeseman, a librarian, present an exhaustive, scholarly examination of copyright history and law. They cover international developments in copyright law, judicial decisions, and congressional guidelines, and offer examples of applying the law to real-life situations. Simpson, editor of Technology Connection, writes an excellent overview of copyright issues in a concentrated, practical guide for school library media specialists. Both books carry the important message that educators must understand copyright implications and practice "defensive law." As Simpson notes, you do not have to "do anything to be party to a suit." Both books also suggest many helpful resources to explore. All librarians should own a good, current copyright primer, and Simpson's book fits the bill. The Cheeseman and Bielefield book is more in-depth and theoretical, better suited to those who need more than a basic guide. It does, however, cover some practical situations the Simpson book doesn't, such as distance learning and contractual agreements. Both of these titles are admirable contributions to the professional literature, arming librarians to embrace the information environment without risking costly and embarrassing copyright infringement suits.Lawrence L. Jaffe, University of Delaware
