The Law of E-books: AALL October Webinar

Is your library providing your users with access to e-books? Does the library have perpetual rights to the files, or will the files become inaccessible to users after a period of time? What clauses should the library pay special attention to when negotiating licenses? Are the e-books the library provides accessible to users with print disabilities? What privacy laws govern the readers’ use of e-books? This webinar will address all of these questions, and give participants an opportunity to share experiences and ask questions of their own.

Register by October 21.

The presenters use an entertaining and energetic approach to engage the audience and demonstrate why everyone in an organization should be viewed as a potential leader.

This post has been reposted on the Gallagher Law Library blog

Reference librarian Anna Endter has created a new guide to Washington State’s LLLT program. It chronicles the history and development of the concept and its adoption by and through the Washington Supreme Court and the Washington State Bar Association.

The guide describes and links to court orders, Board of Governors’ meetings, magazine articles, and a YouTube video.

This fall, the University of Washington School of Law will offer a family law curriculum to qualified applicants.

A companion guide covers State Activities Related to Limited License Legal Professionals. This page addresses developments in California, New York, and Oregon.

Both sites will be updated as additional developments occur.
