Librarians are constantly confronted with copyright questions and issues in the routine execution of their duties. The UCCS Copyright Conference offers public, academic, and school librarians the opportunity to learn about U.S. Copyright Law and how it impacts the services we offer our patrons. Conference participants will develop a better understanding of the law and learn how to balance the rights of authors and creators with the needs of our patrons.
