The 2016 Midwest Archives Conference Fall Symposium, "Archivists and Copyright" will take place in Ann Arbor, Michigan, October 7-8, 2016, at the Hilton Garden Inn. The instructors for this year's symposium are Melissa Levine and Aprille McKay. Melissa serves as the Lead Copyright Officer for the University of Michigan Library, and Aprille is the Assistant Director for University Collections and Records Management at the Bentley Historical Library.
Archivists have always had an uneasy relationship with copyright. This one-and-a-half day workshop will address some of that uneasiness by introducing participants to the "Best Practices in Fair Use" initiative and by providing opportunities for collectively exploring strategies for managing risk and for balancing often-competing demands for access and privacy.
The symposium schedule, along with information about registration and hotel accommodations, can be found on the symposium website.
Make your plans now to join us in beautiful Ann Arbor in a few weeks!
