You may have seen this pop up on LM Net. In case you missed it, the ALA is offering a free webinar for librarians and educators on copyright. A key part of information literacy is understanding how to legally and ethically use information, which is rooted in copyright. It is a complicated subject that many people come to librarians (i.e., you) for, but you may not have a solid understanding of it.
