      • Grow the skills and commitment of supervisors and employees.
      • Use positive reinforcement and workplace contracts to effectively manage employees.
      • Better address the life cycle of an employee, from recruitment and orientation to departure.
      • Better manage workplace conflict, discipline, and termination.

Requirements:

  • Participants must be currently working as a supervisor in a Colorado library (Includes public, school, academic and special).
  • Participants must be available to attend both days of the workshop.

Due to high demand, we will limit registration for each workshop to one staff member per organization on a first come first serve basis. (If for some reason we do not fill all of the slots, we will consider wait list registrants, but will limit to just one staff member per building or location.)

Public Domain: Opening the Vault 

 

This year’s Kraemer Copyright Conference will discuss the implications of copyrighted works entering the Public Domain and what this means for information use and access.  On January 1, 2019, thousands of renowned works including books, music, and art from 1923 became public domain. These copyrighted works were scheduled to become public domain in 1999 but the Copyright Term Extension Act extended that time to 20 more years.  

 

We will have an excellent group of keynotes: 

 April Hathcock, Director of Scholarly Communications & Information Policy, New York University Libraries 

Kenneth Crews, Attorney, author, professor, and international copyright consultant 

Kevin Smith, Dean of Libraries, The University of Kansas 

Kyle Courtney, Copyright Advisor, Harvard University 

Sandra Aya Enimil, Copyright Services Librarian and Program Director of Copyright Services, The Ohio State University Libraries 

Sara Benson, Copyright Librarian & Adjunct Assistant Professor, University of Illinois Libraries
