Upcoming: ALAO to host ACRL webcasts

The Academic Library Association of Ohio is pleased to announce that we are planning to host rebroadcasts of two ACRL webcasts later this spring.  Registration for these webcast rebroadcasts will be free for ALAO members ($30 for nonmembers).  Time, date and location will be announced soon along with information on how to register.  Please consider joining us for the webinars and conversation with colleagues about these important topics.

From the ACRL website:

The Crisis in Academic Libraries (and Why This is the Best Thing Ever) 90 minutes
There is a crisis in academic libraries and librarianship. Or so we are being told. Frankly, Michael Ridley delighted. This is happening not a moment too soon. While there are some significant challenges in our field, the real looming crisis is that we might not grasp the tremendous opportunity before us. It’s time to escape the echo chamber and break out of the filter bubble. Our universities are at a critical stage of transformation.

Fair Use in Your Library after Georgia State 90 minutes
In this webcast, copyright librarians and lawyers will explore and dissect the court’s framework using specific examples from the Georgia State case in order to explain the ruling, the effect that the case may have on future fair use analyses, and its impact on library policies such as course reserves and interlibrary loan.

Keep an eye out for future announcements concerning this event.
