The Kraemer Copyright Conference is a dynamic and enriching FREE conference that offers public, academic, special, and school librarians the opportunity to learn about U.S. Copyright Law, recent updates to the law, and how it impacts the services we offer our library users. This conference provides an opportunity for professionals at every level and across libraries to discuss the importance of copyright in libraries.

This year’s Kraemer Copyright Conference will discuss the copyright implications of open access. Under open access, published works are available to users with no financial, legal, or technical restrictions. Some benefits include immediacy, rapid disperse of innovative ideas inciting new studies, impact and citations, and author and institution visibility. Do not miss the opportunity to learn more about open access. 

We will have an excellent group of keynote speakers, including:

Closer to Free: Aspirations v. Legal Limitations in Public Libraries

Freedom of speech, freedom to assemble, freedom to read, programming, and safe places. Libraries are, as so often is the case, at the hinge point. During this webinar, we’ll learn foundational principals of free speech and then discuss whether and how libraries can find a balance between ethical aspirations and legal limitations when it comes to serving the public.

“Closer to Free”
Everybody wants to live, like they want to live
And everybody wants to love, like they want to love
And everybody wants to be, closer to free
(the BoDeans, 1993)

This webinar is being presented by the legal team representing libraries at Seter & Vander Wall, P.C.: Kim Seter, Elizabeth Dauer, and Cameron Richards

This free 60-minute webinar is being hosted by the Colorado State Library, and may be of interest to library administrators, trustees, staff, and volunteers.

Pre-registration is recommended. This webinar is limited to 100 live attendees, with priority given to those affiliated with Colorado libraries. This webinar will be recorded and archived. All registrants will receive a link to the recording when it becomes available.
