ALCTS/bepress Digital Commons Midwinter Symposium
Here There Be Dragons: Public Access to Federally Funded Research
Friday, January. 24, 2014, 8:30 a.m.–4 p.m.
In February 2013, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy issued a memorandum directing Federal agencies to expand public access to the results of taxpayer-funded research. Several means of addressing this mandate, including SHARE (offered by the ARL, AAU, and APLU) and CHORUS (offered by the AAP), have been proposed. This symposium will explore the complex issues surrounding the collection, organization, delivery, and preservation of federally funded research.

International Relations Forum
Topic: Fair Use and DRM in Libraries: Beyond the United States
Fair use and digital rights management (DRM) seem to push in opposite intellectual-property directions. Fair use is a web of precedent and ruling that (sometimes) allows reuse of intellectual property without permission from copyright holders. Digital rights management is perceived as undermining the traditional first-use rights of purchasers, including libraries. What do fair use and DRM look like on the international scene? Join the ALCTS International Relations Committee for a discussion with experts.
