>Webinar – Social Media, Libraries and the Law


Date: Thursday, March 17, 2011
Time: 3:00 pm – 4:00 PM
Place: Online
Cost: Free

Social Media services are some of the latest tools libraries use to communicate with their users.

•Does your library have Facebook, Twitter and Flickr accounts?
•Do you understand their terms-of-service, and know what may be negotiable?
•Do you create content for your library’s social media sites?
•Do children use your social media sites?
•Does your library have a social media policy?

In this one-hour webinar, you will:

•learn some copyright pointers, including two important steps you can take to protect your library from secondary liability if users post copyright-protected content in the comments sections.
•understand what you may delete, and what you shouldn’t delete without a lawyer’s advice.
•look at privacy issues of special concern with children.
•see a sample policy that you can use as a starting point.

This one-hour webinar will be of interest to Public Service staff, Library Administrators, all staff contributing to social media, and individuals responsible for creating library policies.

Webianrs are free of charge and registration is ONLY done on the day of the event on the WebEx server. No passwords are required. Simply click here beginning at 2:30 PM to join in. Webinars are archived for viewing on the website.
