Libraries seldom have generous graphic arts budgets, and it can be hard to give your web pages that extra sparkle. When is it OK for a library to borrow graphics and text from other websites? This webcast guides you through a handy flowchart that helps you identify what is in the public domain, gives you a sense of what qualifies as "fair use," and offers sample permission forms that can be emailed to webmasters.

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