Description:

What was the process of the Copyright Act Review?  What was the experience of appearing before the Parliamentary Committee? Who appeared? What did the librarians say? What did the publishers say?  What interesting questions were asked? What questions couldn’t be fully answered? What post-hearing actions were taken? Hear the experiences of three librarians who appeared before the Parliamentary Committee, with a summary of what the legislation actually says: for the libraries, what should change and what should remain as is; for publishers, what should change and what should remain as is.

This presentation is of interest to academic, public and school libraries.
