Get Up to Speed on Copyright in 10 Minutes or Less
CCC will turn the exhibit floor into an interactive classroom, delivering four informative sessions in its booth, #1009. These short presentations are designed to help bring conference attendees up to speed on all things copyright-from copyright law basics to copyright and image use to the latest licensing offerings from CCC. CCC will also air its new 6 ½ minute Copyright Basics video, in which the animated star of the video, Jim the Librarian, walks viewers through the essentials of the U.S. Copyright Act, fair use, public domain and more (you can find Jim on Facebook by searching for firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Hot Topics and Click University
Off the show floor, CCC is teaming up with the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) to host a Hot Topic session on social media and its affect on the work of corporate librarians. "Wikis, Tweets and Blogs, Oh My!" is scheduled for Monday, June 15th from 1:30 PM -3:00 PM in room 145B of the convention center.
CCC will also host "Understanding Copyright in a Web 2.0 Culture" as part of the SLA's Click University continuing education program.
