Call for Presentations: Offsite Session
“Models for Copyright Education in Information Literacy Programs”
Wroclaw, Poland
Organized by the IFLA Copyright and other Legal Matters Advisory Committee
the IFLA Information Literacy Section
We welcome proposals from individuals and organizations for an offsite session to be held on Wednesday, 23 August 2017 from 8:30am-3:30pm at the University of Lower Silesia,
Strzegomska 55, 53-611, Wrocław, Polska.
Proposals should be submitted by 15 March 2017 by completing the online proposal form at: .
The purpose of this day-long event is to discuss models for education on copyright, licensing, and other legal matters within the scope of information literacy programs. We encourage proposals to share views and implementations on copyright education in libraries and in universities aimed at introducing instructors, students, and librarians to the history, current laws, and application of copyright law. The session will focus on effective teaching methods of the full range of copyright and licensing issues for libraries, research and publication, and education: exclusive rights, copyright duration, limitations and exceptions, digital copyright, licensing in the digital environment, applications of the law nationally, the international copyright system, and the legal framework for open access licensing.
The offsite session will be devoted to methodologies for providing a comprehensive knowledge of the legal landscape for copyright, licensing, and related legal and policy matters in libraries and universities. Due to time constraints, presentations focused on advocacy or to promotion of particular views on copyright reform are beyond the scope of the session.
The session may be of interest to library directors; librarians with responsibilities for copyright and other legal matters; information literary specialists; library and information science educators; and policy specialists.
Subjects of interest may include:
·         Implementations of copyright education into information literacy programs
·         Integration of copyright and licensing issues into the LIS curriculum
·         Experience with copyright education programs and initiatives in libraries and higher education
·         Knowledge of copyright as a fundamental requirement in higher education and research
·         Building information literacy in copyright, licensing, and related legal matters
·         Legal frameworks for open access licensing
·         Knowledge of copyright, licensing, and related issues for participation in the information society
The deadline for submitting presentation proposals is 15 March 2017.
Thank you in advance for your interest!
