Using assessment data to make more informed decisions and communicate value is an essential part of what we do to improve our libraries. However, it can be a daunting process to plan, collect, and draw conclusions from assessment data of library programs and collections usage.

Join Krystal Wyatt-Baxter, Head of Assessment at the University of Texas Libraries, and Jacqueline Bronicki, Assessment and Statistics Coordinator at University of Houston Libraries, as they provide their respective insight and tips on programmatic assessment and collections analysis. By the end of this one hour webinar, attendees will have a better idea of what they can do to begin planning for continuous assessment in their library.

Schoolteachers, patrons, students, and staff all use and want to reuse copyrighted material, prompting questions. As service providers, it is important that library staff have a basic understanding of copyright law and know where to find additional information.

This webinar is an introduction to US copyright law for library staff. Participants will learn the basics, including what copyright means, what can be copyrighted, and how long a copyright lasts. The presenters will also provide a very brief introduction to fair use and share their favorite copyright resources online.

Presented by Colleen Lyon, Head of Scholarly Communications at UT Austin, and Emilie Algenio, Copyright & Fair Use Librarian at Texas A&M University.
