The Librarian's Copyright Companion, 2nd Edition, by James S. Heller, Paul Hellyer, & Benjamin J. Keele

Author

Abstract

If anyone working in a library needs a useful guide on the complex world of U.S. copyright law, this updated edition of The Librarian’s Copyright Companion is an excellent work to have. Describing owners’ rights under copyright and the many exceptions to the rules can sometimes feel meaningless, at best. At worst, it can be overwhelming. These authors do a fine job of contextualizing the many rules and exceptions for library operations. The chapters are comprehensive yet easy to understand and expertly use examples to illustrate complicated concepts. The list of online resources, as well as the appendices, make the book a worthwhile purchase.
