We are pleased to announce that the latest translation of “Copyright for Librarians: an online open curriculum in copyright law” was recently launched in Moldova. The curriculum will form part of the “Legal Framework for Libraries Course” in the Bachelor’s degree programme and the “Digital Libraries and Copyright Issues Course” in the Masters programme at Moldova State University.
In a great example of inter-disciplinary co-operation, students from the Department of Translation, Interpretation and Applied Linguistics undertook the translation as part of their graduation internship, supervised by senior lecturers Rodica Caragia and Angela Grădinaru, Ph.D. On completion of their work, the students were presented with certificates of appreciation co-signed by EIFL and Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society who developed the curriculum. The certificates were presented by Associate Professor Nelly Turcan, Vice Dean of the Faculty of Journalism and Scientific Communication and Mariana Harjevschi, EIFL-IP librarian in Moldova and Vice President of the Library Association of Moldova.
The event took place at the School of Library and Information Science at Moldova State University and was attended by members of the consortium, Electronic Resources for Moldova (Resurse Electronice pentru Moldova (REM), as well as library students.
The School is delighted that a significant new resource is available for the library community in Moldova to learn about copyright law and the library perspective in providing access to knowledge, adding to the eIFL Handbook on Copyright and Related Issues for Libraries, also translated. REM and EIFL congratulate staff and students at the Department of Translation, Interpretation and Applied Linguistic for their support in collaborating with the School of Library and Information Science.
The Romanian version is available online under a Creative Commons licence, supported by EIFL. We encourage re-use and adaptation and hope that it will be widely used by all. Access "Copyright for Librarians" in Romanian here.
