Copyright expert, attorney, and Texas Library Association President-Elect Gretchen Hoffmann addresses the new legal challenges of providing information in an increasingly digital world. From fair-use to infringement, this handbook features the guidelines professionals in various areas of librarianship from technical services to interlibrary loan to virtual services need at their fingertips. Topics covered include hyperlinks and framing; browsing and caching; digital images; interlibrary loan and resource sharing; e-reserves and class-based Web pages; library instruction and distance education; and more. Copyright in Cyberspace 2 features new and expanded chapters on the Digital Millennium Copyright Act; file-sharing; licensing; writing a copyright policy; and more. An invaluable section of the book compiles helpful, up-to-date online and print sources and excerpts pertinent legislation and reports, creating a sourcebook librarians can reference as needs arise. Written in an easy-to-understand, question-and-answer format that reveals the essential information and avoids confusing technological jargon and legalese, Copyright in Cyberspace 2 is a unique resource for librarians.
