    "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
