Complete Copyright for K-12 Librarians and Educators
Russell, Carrie
ALA Editions
School librarians and educators have specific copyright questions that are often glossed over in larger books on the subject. Now, thanks to best-selling copyright authority Carrie Russell, there's a resource just for them, offering clear guidance for providing materials to students while carefully observing copyright law. Using whimsical illustrations so well known from "Complete Copyright," Russell: (1) Offers detailed advice on the distinctive issues of intellectual property in the school setting; (2) Explores scenarios often encountered by educators, such as using copyrighted material in school plays, band and orchestra performances, bulletin board displays, and student participation in social media; and (3) Precisely defines "fair use," empowering readers by showing exactly what's possible within the law. Balancing intellectual property law with the rights of school librarians and educators will be a snap with an assist from "Complete Copyright for K-12 Librarians and Educators."
