Conference Theme 

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 

 

Stay tuned for the Call for Proposals

They’re Collecting What?: Reading Vendor Privacy Policies With an Eye to Privacy Concerns

When was the last time you struggled to understand a vendor’s privacy policy—if you even had time to read it. In the digital world, patron privacy becomes increasingly complex for libraries monitor and safeguard. In this webinar, we’ll guide you through a sampling of vendor privacy policies, examine typical policy language, and discuss important questions that libraries need to be asking and addressing with vendors in order to protect patron privacy.

Privacy-Centered Library Vendor Management

Keeping on top of library data privacy is hard work in itself. When you add vendors into the mix, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. This interactive webinar will help libraries protect patron privacy when working with vendors. Learn about best practices in the procurement and contract negotiation processes, potential privacy pitfalls during onboarding vendor services and applications at your library, and strategies and options to cultivate a vendor relationship with privacy in mind. We will also cover best practices for data sharing with other third parties, such as school districts for library card programs and city departments for open data initiatives or for city operations.

Library Patron Data and Privacy: Cycles and Strategies

In this interactive webinar, participants will explore the realm of library data privacy through the patron data lifecycle, from deciding what to collect and storing data to deciding who has access to data and deleting data in both physical and electronic formats. We will cover common library practices that put patron privacy at risk at each stage as well as strategies to mitigate risk to patron privacy. Participants will gain a better overall view of how patron data flows through the library and come back to their libraries with practical strategies in protecting the privacy of their patrons’ data.

CSL in Session: Friends with Benefits

No, not those kind of benefits!

Join us as we walk you through programming designed to help your teens develop their social and emotional skill set. These skills are important for future success, plus the programs that develop them have a variety of helpful side effects! We’ll talk about programming for all budgets and sizes of libraries, everything from Dungeons & Dragons to a Yo-Yo club! We’ll also show you how your summer reading program can address this issue, plus discuss how to take on reluctant admins who are hesitant to greenlight ‘just for fun’ programs.
