Coming Up Soon! NISO January Webinar: What Can I Do With This? Making It Easy for Scholars & Researchers to Utilize Content 


The first of the 2017 NISO Webinar series, this webinar will examine the new perplexities associated with various forms of content and its subsequent reuse in other contexts. What exactly is a permissible use? For whom is that use allowed? Is there a timing factor involved? And how is one supposed to know that? Speakers will address the many concerns of readers, authors, funders, librarians, platform providers, and publishers.
