ABOUT THE RESOURCE
"Copyright for Librarians" (CFL) is an online open curriculum on copyright law that was developed jointly with Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society.
The goal is to provide librarians in developing and transition countries with information concerning copyright law. More specifically, it aspires to inform librarians concerning copyright law in general; the aspects of copyright law that most affect libraries; and how librarians in the future could most effectively participate in the processes by which copyright law is interpreted and shaped.
The Polish adaptation is the result of collaborative work between law students at Nicolaus Copernicus University (UNC) (sknpnt.umk.pl/?p=764) and the University of Bialystok. Information about Polish law was added, along with links to short videos (moodle.umk.pl/BU/mod/book/view.php?id=173&chapterid=167) and presentations (moodle.umk.pl/BU/mod/book/view.php?id=163&chapterid=5), and "Ciekawostki" (interesting facts) were included for fun. While aimed primarily at librarians and library students, the course is helpful for students of law, arts and other disciplines.
