Summary
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
