Copyright and SLMS responsibilities
This week was another lesson in copyright laws in the school system in regards to how the School Library Media Specialist should be involved. I am realizing that in a lot of school systems it is the belief by the staff that the SLMS should be well versed in copyright law and it becomes most of the SLMS responsibility. I feel that the text used in class is a valuable reference point and I would like to save this text for furture use. It is important to update yourself on the copyright law especially in regards to the school system. After reading how the much of the responsibility does fall on the SLMS, I feel that it is important for myself to be well educated in this area and offer professional development workshops and reference sheets for my colleagues.
