Copyright Card Game – delegates and exhibition visitors can sign up to play this learning game on the 5th December Copyright is an important subject for all information professionals but one that often causes anxieties. Some of the anxiety is related to the complexity of copyright law and the fact the law is open to interpretation. Many institutions employ dedicated copyright officers to deal with specialist queries, but it’s important that all information professionals learn the basics of copyright to help them in their professional lives. This workshop will be a taster session based on Copyright the Card Game delivered by Chris Morrison and Jane Secker, the team behind the game’s development. The game has proved a valuable way of teaching librarians about copyright in an engaging and fun way. During this workshop participants will play an abridged version of the game, as well as get ideas about how to use the resource in their own teaching and professional development. Copyright does not need to be a subject to be afraid of and through using the Card Game, participants will have a clear framework for tackling copyright queries that they receive as well as a useful set of resources of where to go to get further information. Sign up here – places are strictly limited and this popular feature will be full very soon.
