Synergy Issue 8, January 2012

The theme of this issue is “transitions”. Whether transitioning from student to professional or from one position of leadership to another, one will always encounter challenges and opportunities that are unexpected and that can reshape one’s view of self and of the profession. Three former ARL Diversity programs participants offer their reflections on what it’s like to transition from one setting to another within the library and information profession, and how their experiences in ARL programs informed their thinking and behaviors as they made those transitions. The issue concludes with a call for applications for the newest diversity recruitment initiative administered by ARL and funded by a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Service (IMLS). This partnership between ARL, the Music Library Association (MLA), and five partner ARL member libraries seeks to recruit students from traditionally underrepresented ethnic and racial minority groups into music and performing arts librarianship.

Fair Use and Education: The Way Forward

The ability to make reasonable "fair use" of copyrighted material is both economically and culturally important to the enterprise of education. In asserting fair use, teachers, librarians, and others cannot rely on a claim of "educational exceptionalism," for which there is no clear basis in U.S. Copyright law. Instead, they should seek to take advantage of current trends in copyright caselaw, including the marked trend toward preferring uses that are "transformative," where the amount of content used is appropriate to the transformative purpose. Over twenty years, we have accumulated considerable information about what constitutes "transformativeness," and members of the education community are well-positioned to provide persuasive narratives explaining how educational uses significantly repurpose and add value to the copyrighted content they incorporate.

Code of Best Practices in Fair Use: Designing the Public Domain

This Note from the Harvard Law Review organizes research on pro-social motivation around the motivation-fostering effects of empowerment, community, and fairness. By incorporating these norms into the cultural architecture of the public domain, we can promote greater information production at less cost than by relying solely on the intellectual property system's traditional tools of exclusion.
