Subject: [arts-lib] Community Practices in the Fair Use of Video in Libraries
Dear Arts Section Colleagues,
The Fair Use and Video Project, sponsored by ALA's Video Roundtable and the Office of Information Technology Policy, has posted online its report, "Community Practices in the Fair Use of Video in Libraries," http://pages.shanti.virginia.edu/Fair_Use_and_Video/.
For an introduction to the document, please see Carrie's Russell's blog post on ALA'S District Dispatch at http://www.districtdispatch.org/2012/04/introducing-community-practices-in-the-fair-use-of-video-in-libraries/ .
This project attempts to describe community practices in the fair use of video, looking at how librarians routinely and responsibly fulfill their mission to preserve and provide access to this part of our cultural record. The team conducted in-person interviews at national conferences and hosted a series of focus groups at locations across the country: Boston, Seattle, Evanston, Washington, D.C. and Richmond. About eighty library staff members with varying responsibilities for buying, processing, and/or supporting the educational use of video were included in our surveys.
We welcome your comments and suggestions! This is a living document and your comments may prompt revisions. If you'd like to leave a comment, please use the Comments link on the right. Please do let me know if you have any problems accessing or using the site.
