Copyright help from ALA———and it’s free!

Kudos to ALA for providing the following service to librarians.

"The Copyright Advisory Network (CAN) is a Website, bulletin board, blog and wiki established to help librarians discuss copyright issues with colleagues facing similar concerns, share solutions, and learn  more about copyright from trained copyright specialists.  Pose your  copyright query on the Network Forum, and trained copyright  specialists –known as the CAN Scholars – will respond to your question within 48 hours. The Scholars will not provide legal advice but informed opinion on your topic. Anyone can join the Network by  registering at:  This is a free service  offered by ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP).  Contact Carrie Russell, Copyright Specialist at with questions or comments."
