Actions and Detail Panel
Fair Use for Education
Fri. 17 February 2017, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm AEDT
Note: this is an official satellite event of the ALIA Information Online Conference.
In its recent IP report, the Productivity Commission has recommended that Australia adopt a fair use exception, in part because of the benefits it would provide for educational institutions. This session brings together local and international experts to answer frequently asked questions about libraries and fair use, including:
Do schools and universities need fair use?
How would it affect the statutory licence?
Why do we need fair use when we have OER?
Attend this session and be part of the global discussion.
