Our panel of experts, Allyson Mower, Peter Midgley, and Sally Linford with each discuss a current issue relevant to copyright law in libraries followed by addressing, as a panel, several pre-submitted questions from conference attendees. Finally, we will leave a few minutes at the end to field additional questions from session attendees.
