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:

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

Kyle Courtney, Copyright Advisor, Harvard University

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

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

Nancy Sims, Copyright Program Librarian, University of Minnesota Libraries

Kevin Smith, Dean of Libraries, The University of Kansas

Getting Relationships Right

The importance of relationships in the social and emotional learning of youth is well documented by extensive research. Yet many professionals who work directly with youth, especially those from marginalized communities, do not have the skills to build developmental relationships. This workshop is for organizational leaders and trainers who want to prepare their direct service staff and teachers to create intentional and inclusive relationships that are life changing. Participants will be guided through the use of the training tools and resources of Search Institute’s Developmental Relationships Framework.
