Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy
Fair use is essential to information literacy because it empowers the student to use the works of others legally. Fair use in U.S. Copyright Law allows people to use the works of others without asking their permission under certain circumstances. But because fair use is a balancing test rather than bright line rules, it ultimately takes a court to decide its boundaries. The Georgia State University eReserves and the HathiTrust cases offer new decisions on applying fair use in higher education. The presenters will discuss an overview of the cases and provide approaches of how to integrate them into an information literacy framework.
