Webcast Title: "BORROWING" GRAPHICS OR TEXT FOR LIBRARY WEB PAGES: FAIR PLAY AND FAIR USE
Date: March 3, 2005
Time: Noon - 1:00pm PST
Description: Libraries seldom have generous graphic arts budgets, and it can be hard to give your Web pages that extra sparkle. When is it OK for a library to borrow graphics and text from other Web sites? This Webcast guides you through a handy flowchart that helps you identify what is in the public domain, gives you a sense of what qualifies as "fair use," and offers sample permission forms that can be emailed to Webmasters.
