NYLI recently co-hosted a talk with LLAGNY on Open Access, Copyright, and Repositories. The presentation was given by Kyle K. Courtney, a lawyer and librarian. Kyle is the Copyright Advisor for Harvard University Library working in the Office for Scholarly Communication. He works closely with Harvard Library to establish a culture of shared understanding of copyright law and open access within the Harvard community. His “Copyright First Responders” initiative was profiled in Library Journal in 2013, and he was named a National Academic Library Mover & Shaker in 2015. You can find him on Twitter @KyleKCourtney.
Topics covered in the session were issues with open access policies and copyright’s interaction with open access policy. Solutions to these issues were pursued through audience participation and interaction.
Stay tuned for similar events happening at NYLI in the future!
