Article IV of ALA’s Code of Ethics states, “We respect intellectual property rights and advocate balance between the interests of information users and rights holders.” This program – part of COPE’s “Ethics in a Digital World” series – will address practical solutions to ethical dilemmas that libraries of all types face in regard to copyright. A panel of experts will address issues in public, academic, and school libraries, empowering librarians to help people do what’s right – moving from copyright police to sources of creative support. This program is cosponsored by ALA Editions.
