Exploring the implications of copyright in post lockdown provision of Audio-visual material.

Ruth Burns and Neil Sprunt, University of Manchester Library

  This webinar will discuss the issue of audio-visual provision of content, the increasing demand for it to be in a digital medium, the implications when an item is not available through an academic streaming service and how copyright law and risk relate to the path we may take in the future. We also hope to open a discussion about what other libraries are doing in this area, using a document containing anonymous submissions and a discussion session in breakout rooms that will not be part of the recording (the recording will be available for all NAG Members after the event). Due to the topic this free webinar is open to NAG Institutional Members only (i.e. no commercial members please).  If you are not sure if your library is a NAG Member or you are having problems completing the booking, please do contact us and we can check and resolve any technical issues.  We also have a number of places for library staff who are non-NAG Members; please just email us and we can arrange a ticket for you.  All NAG Members (including commercial members) will be able to view the presentation section of the webinar after the event.

Our speakers:

Ruth Burns is the Collection Development Data Coordinator at the University of Manchester Library, and frequently describes her role as metaphorically hitting data with a hammer till it comes out in an understandable format. Ruth also has a focal role in the sourcing of audio-visual material for the Library. Neil Sprunt is the University of Manchester Library's Teaching and Learning Services Manager and Copyright Manager, and is responsible for copyright guidance at the University of Manchester. With a teaching and learning focus, Neil works to help staff and students understand how copyright affects them whilst enabling them to get the most out of copyrighted materials for educational use. He also oversees the University's collective licences and works closely with the University's legal team in the development of relevant policy and procedures.
