“Copyright and libraries: what’s new? The EIFL perspective” / Autorsko pravo i biblioteke: šta je novo? Perspektiva EIFL-a was published in December 2013 in Bosniaca - the Journal of the National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

In the global, networked environment, it is essential that librarians follow developments in copyright around the world. The article describes current issues that affect library services and activities in EIFL partner countries, how librarians contribute to international policy making at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and how librarians in EIFL partner countries are involved in national copyright debates so that laws support modern library activities, and local library needs in serving their users.
