Highlights from the Associate Board Events Archive
Open Bibliography: Fair Use, Copyright, and You
Fair use and other exceptions to copyright law exist to provide access to protected works under very specific conditions. The LCA Associate Board, in partnership with the Loyola University Library, assembled a panel to discuss the tools available for artists, archivists, librarians, and academics to access protected works while discussing strategies for working with existing copyright restrictions. The panel consisted of Pia Hunter (Research and Instruction Librarian, University of Illinois-Champaign), Matthew Sag (Associate Dean of Faculty Research and Development, Loyola University, School of Law), and Sandra Kaufmann (Director of Dance, Loyola University, Department of Fine and Performing Arts). The panel was moderated by James Conley (Media Service Librarian, Loyola University). Michael Reed (Principle attorney at the Law Office of Michael Reed) provided an overview of copyright law and fair use concepts prior to the panel discussion.
2019 City Lit Event at Justice Entrepreneurs Project
In partnership with the American Librarian Association, Justice Entrepreneurs Project, and City Lit Theater, LCA and the LCA Associate Board sponsored a live literary reading of excerpts from twelve books that had been challenged or banned from circulation public or school libraries in 2018. The event was part of City Lit Theater's Books on the Chopping Block, an annual celebration of our freedom to read and the First Amendment. Michael Reed (Law Office of Michael Reed) provided opening remarks on the value of literacy and access to information in a free and open democracy, and the way in which the written word can act as a window into the lives of others to increase empathy and compassion within society.
