From the Association of Research Libraries:
ARL, American University’s (AU) Washington College of Law, and AU’s School of Communication released a new infographic that tells the story of library fair use and the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for Academic and Research Libraries.
The Code of Best Practices in Fair Use was released a year and a half ago and it is changing practice around the US. The Code team has been on a whirlwind tour doing in-person events and webcasts to promote the Code all over the country. Now it’s time for library fair use enthusiasts to help spread the word, and this infographic is a powerful tool that can help pique interest in the Code itself and the overall story of how fair use has evolved to become a powerful users’ right. Share the link, embed the image on your site, print some copies for your next event, and help keep moving libraries forward on this vital issue.
