Turning the tables – how do copyright laws measure up for libraries?

(19 September 2016) The EIFL Core Library Exceptions Checklist – is a practical and fun way to help librarians to evaluate their domestic copyright law.

What if library advocates had a handy way to measure the aspects of copyright law most important to them? Like the provisions that allow libraries to develop their collections, provide robust support to education and research, preserve our cultural heritage not just for tomorrow but for the long term future, and to serve all persons with disabilities equally.

Or legally speaking, to measure the limitations and exceptions that provide the essential balance in copyright law between the rights of copyright owners and the rights of users..

The EIFL Core Library Exceptions Checklist is a practical and a fun way to help librarians do just that – to evaluate their domestic copyright law, identify gaps or see where the law is doing well.

The fun starts here.
