Diverse Books Need Us Program Moscone Convention Center

Description :

The Office for Intellectual Freedom estimates that over half of all banned books are by authors of color, or contain events and issues concerning diverse communities.

Diverse books need us in order to get published! How can librarians and the publishing industry work together to make this happen even more often?

State Government Information and the Copyright Conundrum Program Moscone Convention Center
2018 (W)
Description :

Why should we care about copyright of state government information? Isn't it all in the public domain? It’s public information just like federal government information, right? WRONG!

Unlike Federal Government documents, which are almost universally in the public domain, for the purposes of US copyright law, state government documents now receive copyright protection by default. Despite this current default, our interactions with state agencies and librarians have led us to the conclusion that many state agencies view their documents as being in the public domain.

The consequences of the divide between the legal default and the perception of state agencies is a significant impediment to institutions seeking to digitize historic state publications, capture and archive born digital publications, and freely disseminate these materials to the public via library catalogs or digital repositories. Academic institutions and digital repositories, like HathiTrust, face significant hurdles when they want to release scanned post-1923 state government publications.

Join us for a panel presentation on the following topics:

* Discussion of State Government Information and Copyright
* Issues that libraries, digital repositories and state agencies, specifically state libraries, face with copyright ambiguity.
* The work FSGI: Free State Government Information is doing to address this little discussed but major issue. http://stategov.freegovinfo.info/

Panelists:
Bernadette Bartlett, Library of Michigan, State Government Documents Librarian
Kristina Eden, University of Michigan Copyright Office, Copyright Instruction Librarian
Kris Kasianovitz, Stanford University, Government Information Librarian
