The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) recently released a white paper, "The Law and Accessible Texts: Reconciling Civil Rights and Copyrights." This white paper analyzes how institutions of higher education can meet their mission of providing all students with equitable access to information within the current legal framework and clarifies long-held but erroneous legal restrictions. Join a primary author of the paper and two higher education consultant/AHEAD leaders for an in-depth look at what copyright law actually says and implications for your processes. This webinar will answer the questions you and your institution have about creating alternative format materials.
