I'm working on a webcast on virtual reference that Infopeople is sponsoring on June 16th for California librarians. Note: Anyone else can watch the archives soon thereafter.
Do you have any questions, insights, comments that could help me put together a relevant presentation? I'm working on this now - so please send your brilliant thoughts to me if you have any.
The webcast will look at common concerns such as:
What privacy concerns are raised? What can your library do to minimize privacy concerns?
What issues are raised when a librarian sends a scanned document via email or through a live chat session?
Does it make a legal difference whether you scan an article yourself and send it via email versus pushing it from a database via the chat session?
Who owns the copyright to the patron interviews? Can they be used in promotions?
Protect yourself and your library by getting a fix on the legal framework affecting digital reference and pushed content through this latest installment in Infopeople's ongoing series of webcasts on library legal issues.
