    Whether you build a new library or transform an existing one, do not build the best library of the previous era. Create an environment that facilitates new patterns of interaction, learning, and accessing information.  Administrators, trustees, board members, librarians, community residents, faculty, students and architects must collaborate to arrive at the design that best responds to the community that the library serves.  The presentation is based on Peter Gisolfi’s recently released book, Collaborative Library Design: From Planning to Impact, published by the American Library Association (ALA).

     Brief Biography: Peter Gisolfi

    Peter Gisolfi is a licensed architect and landscape architect.  He is the senior partner of Peter Gisolfi Associates, Architects and Landscape Architects, in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York, and New Haven, Connecticut.  He is also a professor of architecture and landscape architecture at the Spitzer School of Architecture at The City College of New York, where he was chairman of the school for eight years.  Over the last 30 years, he and his firm have built or transformed more than 40 libraries - public libraries, school libraries, and academic libraries.   The firm is the recipient of more than 85 architectural design awards.

    Peter Gisolfi is the author of more than 100 articles on design issues in architecture and landscape architecture. His book, Finding the Place of Architecture in the Landscape, expresses his ideas about architecture, landscape architecture, and their relation to setting.  His new book, Collaborative Library Design: From Planning to Impact, was published in June 2018 by ALA.

    "Risk Management" is at the top of every administrators' agenda.  While they recognize the importance of complying with requirements of HIPPA, HEOA, EEOC, etc., they may be unaware of the serious legal, financial, and ethical risks resulting from noncompliance with copyright law. 

    In addition to being CONSUMERS of copyrighted materials, our organizations are also CREATORS of original content, and they need to develop procedures for protecting that often valuable content. 

    There are many misunderstandings about the complexities of copyright in the digital age - and many opportunities to self-publish, use social media, employ multimedia resources, exploit licensed resources, etc. 

    This course will explore the vital role librarians with basic copyright skills can play in minimizing the organization's exposure to liability.  The can be involved in discussions of  "best practices" to balance the critical need to share information among health professionals and educators while managing risks.  They can teach all types of patrons (administrators, staff, faculty, students, and the public) how to employ copyright law as a tool to achieve their goals.  

    Topics to be covered:

    • Answering common myths with basic copyright concepts; 
    • Formulating best practice for copyright risk management; 
    • Developing awareness/communication/outreach/education plans; and 
    • Q&A 
    Presented by: Barbara C. Ingrassia, MLS, AHIP, CCM, Certified Copyright Manager, Speaker and Trainer, President of Manage Copyright
