An Infopeople Webinar

November 3rd, 2011 12:00 PM
1:00 PM

Presenter: Mary MinowPhoto of Mary Minow

  • Does your library have any protection when images that it posts on its website or social media sites start proliferating onto other sites without permission?
  • Does it have any protection when images of the staff, the public, library exhibits, or the library itself appear in social media without permission?
  • Who owns those images?
  • When can the library use images created by others?

This one-hour webinar includes a refresher and update to finding images in the public domain and asking permission for images that are copyrighted.

By the end of the webinar, participants will:

  • Be introduced to, a phenomenal reverse image search tool
  • Have a basic understanding of the legal protections the library’s images may have, and what they don’t have
  • Be exposed to a takedown request and learn where to turn for help if they get one
  • Be given sample language to use when asking permission to use an image, and to best ensure that the permissions given are legitimately from the copyright owner

This webinar will be of interest to library facebook, twitter, and other social media contributors, webmasters, graphic artists, blog and newsletter writers and editors.

Webinars are free of charge and registration is only done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required.
