Copyright for Librarians (CFL), an online open curriculum on copyright law, has launched a new textbook aimed at providing librarians in developing and transition countries with general information concerning copyright law in addition to the aspects of the law that most affect libraries.
The handbook, entitled, “Copyright for Librarians: the essential handbook,” is adapted from CFL’s online course materials.
CFL is a joint project of the Harvard University Berkman Center for Internet & Society and Electronic Information for Libraries (eIFL), a network of library consortia in 50 countries in Africa, Asia, and Europe.
The handbook is available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Polish, Romanian/Moldovan, and Russian. More information is available here.
