Le Berkman Center (Harvard) et eIFL.org viennent de lancer un guide (en anglais) sur le droit d'auteur pour les bibliothécaires. Suite à un survol rapide, je crois qu'il est très complet et pertinent, même si la loi diffère dans chaque pays. Les concepts y sont bien représentés. Voici le lien vers cette nouvelle ressource:

Subject: [IFLA-CLM] Launch of "Copyright for Librarians" - an Online Open
Curriculum on Copyright Law

Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society and eIFL.net Launch
"Copyright for Librarians", an Online Open Curriculum on Copyright Law

The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University today
announced the launch of a new online, open access curriculum, "Copyright
for Librarians" (http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/copyrightforlibrarians/),
developed in conjunction with eIFL.net. "Copyright for Librarians" aims to
inform librarians about copyright law in general, as well as the aspects of
copyright law that most affect libraries, especially those in developing
and transition countries.

"Copyright law directly affects library services providing access to
learning resources, scientific and research information," said Rima
Kupryte, Director eIFL.net. "Everyday librarians are managing information
and responding to requests from students, academics, and members of the
public. They are well placed to provide practical advice on topical
copyright-related issues. This curriculum, which includes modules on the
scope of copyright law, exceptions and limitations and managing rights,
provides librarians from around the world with an opportunity to understand
this important area of law."

"Librarians and their professional organisations play key roles in shaping
national and international copyright policy and in protecting and promoting
access to knowledge," said William Fisher, faculty director of the Berkman
Center for Internet & Society, "eIFL.net has created a crucial network of
librarians in developing and transition countries. It is essential that the
members of that network have the fullest possible understanding, not just
of the current copyright laws, but also of the ways in which those laws
could and should be interpreted and modified in the future. We hope that
this curriculum will help to advance that understanding."

"Maximising access to educational and learning materials is critical for
development in Africa", said Benson Njobvu, University of Zambia. "Teaching
students about legal information issues enhances the role of the librarian,
preparing the next generation for a professional career in the digital age.
We aim to produce librarians who will become well-informed advocates for
access to knowledge. "Copyright for Librarians" is a valuable new resource
that will help us to achieve our goal".

The course materials of "Copyright for Librarians" - nine modules
organised into five different levels - can be used as the basis for a
self-taught course, a traditional classroom-based course, or as a
distance-learning course. For more information and access to the course
materials, visit: http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/copyrightforlibrarians/

eIFL.net is grateful to the Ford Foundation for their support of the
development of "Copyright for Librarians."
