Fair Use, Intellectual Property, and New Media
As libraries continue to acquire digital content (books, films, websites, and other media), they face an increasing demand both to adhere to relevant intellectual property laws, and to open up materials for teaching and research purposes. This session will feature a panel of professors, lawyers, and librarians to discuss how librarians can assert fair use rights and understand the complex range of issues concerning intellectual property rights over new media materials.

The role of this interactive program is to inspire and instill the member-leader, volunteer-leader, and/or community-leader in all of us!

Linking Data Across Libraries, Archives, and Museums
Sponsored by the ALA/SAA/AAM Committee on Archives, Libraries, and Museums.
The linked data movement is an effort to develop best practices for publishing and connecting structured data on the Web. For libraries, archives, and museums, this movement offers opportunities to take the structured metadata we collect and open it up so that it can be more easily reused and shared. Panelists will consider general aspects of linked data along with specific examples related to vocabularies and archival standards as well as the projects that put linked data into practice.
Subjects: Scholarly Communication, Special Collections, Transforming Libraries, Emerging Technologies
