    Event description

    This training will present our usual Copyright Essentials. The training will take place as two webinars: A short introduction to copyright and Using copyright: licensing and exceptions. Additionally we are running a free webinar focused on the proposed Copyright access reforms. If you wish to attend more than one webinar you must register for each session separately. The link for each webinar will be provided to registrants closer to the training date.

    Copyright – it touches on almost all areas of practice in libraries and archives, yet many do not feel confident in dealing with it on a day to day basis. Recognising the need, the Australian Libraries Copyright Committee (ALCC) continues to provide copyright training to members and non-members nationwide.

    This training aims to arm librarians and archivists with the knowledge and skills to tackle copyright in their institutions. From document delivery to open access, we cover it all and take questions from the participants.


    This session will be run between 1–2:30 pm AEDT on Monday 30 November 2020.

    These sessions are aimed at attendees with different levels of knowledge and experience. This session and the Using copyright: licensing and exceptions session are designed to work as discrete sessions or as a pair. The Access reforms: what do we know? session is an information session updating librarians and archivists on where the reform process is at. The webinars are designed so that you can attend any of the sessions individually or combine them for a fuller program. Please register for all sessions you plan to attend - places fill up fast.


    This session and the Using copyright: licensing and exceptions session are free for ALCC member organisations and their employees – so if you or your institution* are a member of ALIA, NSLA, CAUL, AGLIN, CAARA, ASLA, ASA or other member organisations, the only cost is your time. Both are also open to non-members; however a price is charged. Members of the ALCC's sister organisation, the Australian Digital Alliance, receive a discount on this price. The Access reforms: what do we know? session is free to all registrants.

    *Please note: There is a limited capacity allocation for employees of institutions that are organisational members of ALIA. If you are not a member of ALIA as an individual and you wish to attend the training, please first contact the institution through which you are affiliated with ALIA. Each ALIA affiliated organisation has up to 3 free tickets per session.
