October 25-26, 2012  |  Menucha Retreat and Conference
Corbett, Oregon

Change*) and *Char Booth* (*Revaluing Libraries: Content, Container, or
Concept?*). Also featuring a virtual/local discussion of *fair use*
AND *participant-generated
content* in the form of lightning talks and a poster session (see
descriptions below).

*Fair Use as Advocacy Laboratory: Best Practices and the Future of Fair Use
As librarians, we know we are charged with both upholding the intellectual
property rights of copyright holders and with staunchly defending and
exercising our fair use. Unfortunately, uncertainty around which practices
constitute fair use often leaves us apprehensive, over-cautious, or
inconsistent. With the release of the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use
for Academic and Research Libraries in January 2012, librarians gained a
valuable new tool in our efforts to understand and use fair use
appropriately in our daily practice. We will be joined, virtually, by
members of the team that authored the Code who will help us understand its
history and purpose. Following this informative session, Rachel Bridgewater
will facilitate local discussion about application of the Code and the
future of fair use.

Rachel Bridgewater likes to talk about copyright. She is a faculty
librarian at Portland Community College where she teaches students most of
the day either in the classroom or at the reference desk. In addition to
her role as reference and instruction librarian, Rachel serves as PCC's
Copyright Librarian. Rachel has taught online copyright classes for ACRL
and will be leading a class on fair use for Library Juice Academy this
November. Rachel is a member of the national faculty for Emporia State
University's School of Library and Information Management.
