Prepare your library for the changing role of course reserve collections
Reserves, Electronic Reserves, and Copyright: The Past and the Future provides you with a comprehensive understanding of how the traditional role of reserve collections in education has evolved to reflect changes in technologies, copyright laws, and perhaps more important, perceptions of copyright laws. This unique book demonstrates how librarians have allowed their copyright policies and practices to be shaped by rhetoric from publishers and their own misinterpretations of copyright law instead of the actual legal aspects that apply to course reserves. Author Brice Austin, Head of Circulation and Interlibrary Loan Services at the University of Colorado, presents practical strategies for adapting your reserves to the changing world of higher education, focusing on new teaching methods and electronic resources.
In addition to providing a historical overview of reserves and copyrights, Reserves, Electronic Reserves, and Copyright: The Past and the Future offers practical methods for getting the copyright flexibility you need from your course reserves by emphasizing economic instead of legal arguments. You'll find strategies for protecting yourself against a decline in the significance of course reserves as libraries and publishers move from print-based to electronic formats. The book encourages you to take a proactive stance on the future of your reserves operation by: 1) exploiting your position as publishers' customers to your advantage, 2) making full use of Fair Use, and 3) forging partnerships with other campus entities in order to offer expanded, multifaceted reserves services.
