Librarians have put their Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries  right to work, making changes ranging from exhibition practices to media collections . Now, they have an easy way to show colleagues why fair use is essential to their mission: an infographic.
The infographic , developed by the Association of Research Libraries  with funds from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, shows how librarians navigate in a sea of copyrighted material, and which situations most often trigger fair use. It shows how their Code was created, and why it’s so much better than the failed “guidelines” approach.
The infographic is free and ARL encourages its circulation widely. Share with a colleague!
