Register now for two ACRL webcasts

This is a friendly reminder that the Professional Development Committee and the Support Staff Interest Group of Academic Library Association of Ohio invite you to join us for rebroadcasts of two ACRL webcasts on Friday, May 31st at The Ohio State University at Newark. Space is limited to the first 100 registrants so please register early to save your spot.

“The Crisis in Academic Libraries (and Why This is the Best Thing Ever)” will play from 10:00 – 11:30 AM and “Fair Use in Your Library after Georgia State” will play from 1:00 – 2:30PM. Attendees are welcome to come to either or both sessions. Each session will be followed by a brief opportunity to converse with colleagues on these important topics. Re-broadcasts are only available in-person that day.

Registration for these webcast rebroadcasts is free for ALAO members and $30 for non-members (the cost of a one year membership to ALAO). Attendees can bring their lunch or visit one of the many convenient options close to campus during the break. Coffee, tea and water will be available through out the day.

Descriptions of each webinar are listed below courtesy of 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.
