Just Released: Adopting a Statement of Principles on Copyright: An EIFL Template for Consortia

From the EIFL (Electronic Information for Libraries) Web Site:

This template is intended to assist EIFL partner consortia when considering the adoption of a Statement of Principles on Copyright and Related Issues.

EIFL recommends that partner consortia adopt a statement of principles on copyright to raise awareness of the library perspective in copyright issues, and to put copyright on the agenda for consortium planning activities and strategy. It will provide a mandate for the consortium to discuss copyright issues with the national copyright office, raise the visibility of the consortium, demonstrate leadership to members on an important library issue, and help forge alliances with other stakeholders such as the national library association.
