Relying on a healthy mix of legal specialists and her own copyright expertise, educator Bruwelheide has extensively revised and updated this title from its first edition (Checklist, LJ 2/15/88). More than twice the size of its predecessor, this handy resource and working guide focuses on copyright questions, particularly fair use issues, faced by librarians and educators on a daily basis. Clearly written, packed with information, and well indexed, it answers questions like: "May we show an entertainment video for story hour?"; "Are E-mail messages and postings on listservs copyrighted?"; "Is it permissible to circulate a book containing a computer diskette?" There is no unnecessary padding in this practical guide. Appendixes are a gold mine of useful addresses, phone numbers, copyright publications, Internet resources, and landmark court decisions. Highly recommended.?Johanna Johnson, Dallas P.L.
